day 179 - right place, right time

Tuesday, 28 June 2011

I know, I know. I should have used a Top Gun quote for this post title. The truth is, I'm not really a fan so I can't bring myself to do it. I'm more of an Airplane fan than a Top Gun fan and try as I might, I just can't tie it together.

Today was very cool. I was standing beside a corn field, when out of nowhere flew the Snowbirds in diamond formation.

They went right over my head and as quickly as they appeared, they were gone. I was lucky enough to have my camera around my neck at the time.

My iso was really high having just taken some indoor shots and I'm kicking myself for it, but I got the shot and that's the important thing. It was definitely a case of being in the right place at the right time.

Cool catch. Always good to have the camera handy. I can't think of the Top Gun quote-I do actually like that movie-it's sort of a guilty pleasure-Tom Cruise, I don't know.
