Aussie Day Flypast

I rushed to the balcony with my camera to snap the RAAF Roulettes as they flew past, and then went back inside. I rushed to the balcony with my camera to snap the RAAF Roulettes as they flew past, and then went back inside. Yes, I did this several times. I didn't know they were going to hang around for so long. Consequently, I was never quite ready with the camera, but I took a few ok shots.

  2. I love that second shot! These fliers are fantastic aren't they?

    I got some good shots myself several years ago with my first digital camera. I read the instruction book until I knew how to set it for continuous shooting and just followed them across the sky from my backyard.

  3. Andrew, in my own acrophobic headspace I am as impressed with you looking out the window and up as I am with the roulettes.

  4. Christine, I note in England now they are using coloured smoke.

    Rubye, I wish I had known they would fly around so much. I would have just sat there and watched come and go.

    River, I should have read the manual in the past when I wanted to take multiple shots. I couldn't get the camera to do it. I have since learned you have to turn the auto off.

    FuritCake, so you don't want anymore balcony shots looking down?

  5. Good one Andrew! I remember a few years back on a paddle steamer trip up the Murray, they flew by. It was very exciting. They get so close!
