The dawn of destruction

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 24 September 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual.

Final abstract for you to ponder over, as the RAF Red Arrows become the subject of much Photoshop trickery.

This is the end of this series, although I was firm in my intentions the end results were really not as good as I had hoped for. So the next time that the Red Arrows perform in, or near, South Shields you can be sure that I'll be a bit closer to the action.

Now what sort of silliness can I find for tomorrow?

PENTAX K100D 1/3000 second F/9.5 ISO 800 450 mm (35mm equiv.)
