Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Waalhaven 3 July

Post by AK01 »

Since nobody posted anything on this subject (wasn't there alone for sure!) i hereby post a selection of pictures i made yesterday.
I moved around to the various location in the port to get as much variety as possible. Hope you enjoy.
First three Waalhaven NZ in the morning, no sun :
UH60M 26587 coming in to land
Image
UH60M 20395 arriving, this was a crewferry.
Image
UH60M 20395 departing in front of the cruiseship.
Image
Then moved to the Droogdokweg, very far away, this one was 400mm + 2x converter (no autofocus, so old fashioned handwork)
UH60M 20388
Image
UH60M 20395 from the same location.
Image
Then on to the next location where these two Medevacs landed close after each other:
Image
UH60L 26596 landing
Image
Medevac HH60M 20172
Image
A ship was blocking the view when UH60M 20358 was landing, was able to shoot this one anyway:
Image
AH64D 57003 made a perfect turn right in front of me:
Image
CH47F 08461 was high on my list for today, unfortunately he turned in way to close, so bad light.
Image
The last three HH60's made a non standard approach, they continued to far, which was good for the pictures.
HH60M 20409
Image
And last one 20353
Image

...that is a very good shot, considering the ship "framed" it for you,
leaving not that much other options :wink:
