Weymouth Carnival & Air Show 2011

While in England, we went to Weymouth for the yearly carnival and air show. The plan was to catch the air show, the carnival, and most importantly, the fireworks at the end. Things didn’t go entirely to plan, as we decided to go for dinner just before the carnival started, and I forgot to turn off the automatic ISO before shooting the fireworks, but I did at least get photos of the air show.

I haven’t shot fast-moving objects before, so I put on my 200mm lens, put my camera in sports mode, and opted for the spray and pray method. Bringing back a triple digit number of photos, I could pick out a handful of decent shots, despite the cloud cover making for a very dull background.
