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.

G'day All. Any interest in upside down photos?

Post by Motty »

G'day everone,

I happened to meet a "scrambler" at my local hangout today and he mentioned the photo forum here.

I wondered whether there is any interest in photos from Down Under?

Excellent pictures, nice weather. 8) May I ask you where you made these pictures? At which bases (did you go to amberley for the F-111's?) or airshows?

Thank you Marien, glad you like them.

All the photos I have posted so far were taken at various times at RAAF Base Williamtown, near Newcastle.

Cheers,
Motty.

Hej Motty,

Great you found this forum to share your photos!!!
I really like your fourth pic of those two hawks with that dark sky in the background, amazing!

see you,
Corné

I'd rather depict atmosphere and the 'heat of the moment' making a catchy photo than to reflect the real situation and real colours showing a boring photo.

Lately I saw a discussion on a other forum about photographing in Australia. Did you have any trouble with photographing these aircraft (trouble with base-guards / police)? Is it legal to make pictures outside an airbase? I am asking this because I plan to visit Australia in April 2008.

Regards,

Marien (Groeten means greetings in Dutch)
