    Wings over Illawarra Air Show - Sunday, 6 May, 2012

    All,

    The Wings over Illawarra Air Show is being held at Albion Park (on the way to Wollongong) on Sunday, 6 May, 2012.

    Information and onine booking is available at http://woi.org.au.

    I'm heading down there anyway and will have a camera and the big lenses on me, but it could also be a good opportunity for an AP meetup.

    If you have the luxury of having more than one. I'll be using the Bigma for the aerial stuff, wide angle & Tammy 17-50 for the static displays (aircraft & cars). Here's hoping the weather is kind on the day.

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Mongo would have been prepared to crawl out of his cave for this one but unfortunately, he will be molesting Queensland that week. Hope you guys have a great time.

    I won't be able to make it. It is a sad day when social matters interfere with photography.

    Weather is starting to look promising for Sunday, bring a CPL (if you can afford one for the bigmas ). I plan on driving to Wollongong train station and catching the train down there, word on the website is parking will be very limited this year.

    I'm bringing the super-tele. There's no front-mounted filter for that!

    Parking just about anywhere is the pits; we're taking a train directly to Albion Park.

    We met up with AmPhot at the show.

    As with air shows in general, this one was enjoyable, and there was some spectacular flying and rich aviation history on display.

    Also typical of air shows, the bright, glary conditions weren't ideal for photography. I snapp quite a few images, but I wasn't heading there expecting to land some stunners; it's best enjoyed with one's own eyes, really. I might get two or three images out of it.

    Photographically for me it was a dud of an event. I don't normally shoot in daylight anyway. :-)

    It was still fun to see the action with my own eyes.
