Re: red squirrels 04-05-2019

Andy, I am extremely jealous - I have never seen a red squirrel in real life, let alone photographed one. I especially like image 2.

Manchester 26 January and 02 February

I was pleased to get out to Manchester Airport over the last two weekends, and how different those days were. On 26 January the temperature was about 4C and I had to battle the mud to get myself alongside 23L. Not another soul was in sight and the light was rather poor so most of my shots were at hi...

Thanks Pete. I also wish the runway was open a bit longer in the off season - but the way time flies, it will soon be spring again.

Manchester on 14 December

I managed to injure my foot on my way home from my Birmingham trip in November and have not taken the camera out for a month. So I was pleased to be able to pop up to Manchester Airport on Friday. To say it was cold would be an understatement. There was a fair bit of frost around but as a bonus, the...

Re: Birmingham 12 November

Thanks Jonf45. It was my first trip there and I will go back soon. Conditions were excellent, which helped a lot. The prop blur was down to a shutter speed of 1/60 and a tripod but even then I only got 2 acceptable shots out of about 8 taken.

Birmingham 12 November

Having taken a couple of days away from the daily grind, I went on a quick recce to Birmingham International. I travelled by train from Hartford (Northwich) to Birmingham New Street and then on to Marston Green. Crossing over the platform, I was soon on a tarred foot path into well kept parklands an...

Manchester 23L on Saturday 10 November

We had reasonable temperatures and some sunlight on Saturday, so I was pleased to be out on 23L. As we are out of the summer season, the photographs I took were almost repeats of last weekend but I managed to catch the JetAirways A330 and Ryanair's Boeing livery for the first time. https://farm5.sta...

Re: Manchester 3 November

Thanks Mike. I have found a bit of a hidden gem in a parking spot right near the bottom of 23L (or top of 05R) and have started to go out every Saturday that I can. I have never tried winter photography at the airport so this year could be very interesting.
