We had 4 WizzAir Airbus A321's come into the airport as part of a publicity stunt to kick start their campaign to use CWL as a base for new departures. Over other areas of South Wales the 4 came together and flew in a formation but over the airport only 2 came together, although all 4 came together to land but one after the other. They ran a competition for the best image so of course everyone was out. Luckily I was local to where I was and, as they'd go on my website for sale and be sent to Alamy news, was technically working so when the police arrived I was safe of a covid fine.

All taken with the K1 and Sigma 50-500mm. As you can see, we had some cloud cover over the airport which I think may have worked to my advantage to make the images more appealing than a plane on a blue backdrop.

I like the last one best. I think having some space around the plane helps the composition.

It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head. Henri Cartier-Bresson
Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

The clouds make these special, especially the b+w - brings out a ghostly character to the planes. As for their choice of colours - well, let's just say I don't share Wizzair's taste!
