Photographing the Red Arrows

The Red Arrows have been eluding me over the last couple of years.  Twice they were due to perform over Southampton, and both times awful weather stopped it from happening.

Add to that I've seen them flyover unexpected on three occasions, obviously when I didn't have enough time to get a camera ready...

I woke up this morning to a message (thanks Helen!) that they'd be doing a display over Southsea in just a few hours time.  The weather seemed perfect, so I jumped in the van.

The weather was indeed perfect, although it was a tad tricky shooting into the sun.  However I got some shots I'm really rather happy with.
