Manchester 12 May

I popped up to Manchester at the break of day yesterday and spent about four hours southside on the mound. I was surprised to be the only one there, so at least I had the choice of where I set myself up. Although I have owned a tripod for many years, I mostly shoot hand held. However, as I am slowly...

Manchester Airport 7 May

I made my first visit this year to Manchester Airport today. Although I arrived at 08:00 the front row seats were taken so I worked in the background, shooting over the heads of those seated and dodging those standing. Despite there being 36 on board the mound at one stage, I managed to get a few sh...

Re: SPOTM November 2017, Monarch Airlines

This was taken in 2011 at Manchester. I shall miss Monarch - probably my favourite livery.

Re: SPOTM June 2017, Wheels (or floats) off the ground

My entry was taken at Manchester on 1 October 2011, on an unseasonably hot day - my first visit to the end of the runway. Emirates A380.

Manchester 25 March

A few shots from my trip out to Manchester on Saturday. Glorious weather and the hours just flew (pun absolutely intended). Just need to suss out the spots to get better angles and perhaps a bit closer to the action. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2815/32929552333_032c70c93c_b.jpg A319 Lufthansa by P...

Re: Manchester 27/12/15

Iain,
Not too shabby for a first outing. There are some really good images in there - you may want to consider entering your Emirates 380 into the SPOM competition this month.

Mike,

Thanks for the answer. It makes your images even more remarkable, you must have patience to have developed the skill.

Re: Spot The Dot

Mike, I am amazed at just how sharp the images are. How do you keep the telescope steady as I assume it does not sit on a tripod. I find the concept of photographing aircraft at altitude fascinating.

Re: Manchester - 25/02/14

Chris,

Excellent images, as usual. It should be a good incentive to get me out there with the camera for the first time in a year!
