Biggin Hill Air Show 2009

Posted in Aviation at 7:37 pm by Warren Williams

After the success of last years Biggin Hill Air Show, plus the addition of the glorious Vulcan returning to the skies, it was a definite no-brainer to attend this years show.

Spent an evening again with Jason, down to the Thames to catch a sunset. Beautiful pink and mauve colours filled the sky, against the city backdrop.

My long time kiwi friend Jason came visiting London for a few days, before starting his new position in Geneva at CERN.
Decided to show him some of the more impressive views of London, including the modern Canary Wharf, Greenwich Meridian line and a walk along the Thames before sunset alongside Westminster.

POTN All Nighter – Strobist

Posted in Architecture, Landscape, People at 4:59 am by Warren Williams

Some of the London and South-East UK photography-on-the.net (POTN) members converged on central London for an all night shoot, featuring off camera flash (strobist), followed by sunrise soon after 4:30am around the Millennium Bridge. Some were pumped on Red Bull, eager to get every shot, whereas a few of us, it was a desperate game to keep awake. This shoot immediately followed the road trip to Warwick Castle, so a new form of zombie like shooting was formed.

Warwick Castle on a Summer’s Day

Posted in Architecture, Birds, Nature at 6:01 pm by Warren Williams

With a bright summer’s day looming over England, my friends Katie and Ken decided to venture off to Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon for a day trip. Considering I had been there a couple of years ago, I offered to show them around at one of the prettier and entertaining castles on offer.

The birds of prey were again on display, as well as a special flaming trebuchet and glorious warm sun.
