Spitfire

SpitfireSaturday brought more aircraft related diversions, in the form of a Spitfire this time.

This flight was in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the first Spitfire flight. Southampton was where it all originally started.

There were a good crown of people braving the cold up on the Itchen bridge, and probably far more at Mayflower park in Southampton itself, for what was a very quick fly-by.

Not much of a picture, but the plane was over me and gone so very fast. I had spent some time fiddling with the camera settings for that perfect shot, but inadvertently used the wrong metering mode so only ended up with a silhouette.

Ah well, next time.....

  4. Hi Bill

    Yup, all too cleaver.

    Even the idiot proof modes seem daunting.
