There's some very interesting work there Matthew - I like the Orion flypast and the Fire - monochrome works well there.

I think you're right - more than half a dozen in one go is too much to take in on a forum post.

Keep up the good work and keep 'em coming!

A nice selection of images Matthew. The one with Orion gets the trump card  :). Also like the fire shots.

Thanks guys! :D The orion shot was great fun! Myself and trevor durity were out in THE STICKS! But there was a steady stream of cars for some reason! Hence the lights! But i just had to laugh it off and say 'what the hey' it might add to the photo!
