RAF Officer

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 22 May 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Taken at the re-enactment day Fortress Wales at Caldicot Castle a couple of weeks ago.

No comments for the last couple of days as we had a family emergency, our new Granddaughter Mia was rushed to hospital, but fortunately after a scary couple of days it seems she will be ok.

Canon EOS 500D 1/320 second F/5.6 ISO 200 300 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
