I went to my usual perch at Drumcarrow Craig to watch the Red Arrows from a distance. Usually during the second part of the display various groups come almost right over that location, but this year a heavy shower came through just as the second part started and they were restricted to the ‘B’ display. As a result the number of shots was reduced, but I was very pleased with this one.
Of course as they landed the poor weather cleared away!
The day before I took this photo my new 70-300mm lens arrived. Since the camera has a crop factor of x2, that equates to 140-600mm on a 35mm camera! On close inspection the Red Arrows images were not completely sharp, but for web use they are more than fine.
I took the image from Drumcarrow Crag which overlooks Leuchars from the South. I had been there previously and discovered that during the second part of the display they were flying very low over it!
This image has had a slight cheat – one of the two lower Arrows has been moved.
