I used to be indecisive…

weekly photo challenge: motion


This week the subject is motion and the Red Arrows show us motion in the extreme!  Last summer, when I was in Fowey in Cornwall,  I saw one of their displays, which centred over the harbour and river estuary.  The display was stunning, but unfortunately it was a quite a dull afternoon, and the light was very poor.  Some of my photos were pictures of clouds – the jets having passed over before I had depressed the shutter button on my camera!

The first two photos amuse me because the seagulls are in there too, putting on a display of their own.  I thought the jets would have frightened them off.
