Military planes regularly practice flight manouevres over Windermere. It can be a little disconcerting, particularly with the modern jets. The ferocious roar of the engines seems to come from nowhere as they speed along, following the edges of the hills.
This plane wasn’t as noisy as the jets, but it approached our boat at quite a low level before banking at a sharp angle and disappearing into the hills.
Last week, I met up with a friend on London’s South Bank. She has had a digital SLR camera for some years but has never really gone beyond the automatic settings on it. We were both on a break from work and decided to have a day out together, taking photos. I offered to show her how to use her more advanced camera settings.
