No Vulcan - Sun Dog consolation prize

Recommended Posts

So here I was, all prepared to catch XH558 on her farewell tour as she passed over Rutland Water. Camera set up in the garden ready. Nice weather. And of Vulcan... nothing.  :huh:

As I went to put the camera away this evening I looked over to the west and saw a nice Sun Dog. Had a 100-400 mm lens on so couldn't capture the Sun as well. But the local birdlife put on a flypast of its own. 


That cloud has developed since then... Doesn't look like a good night for stars.

That is a lovely image, thanks for sharing.  

I tried (and failed) to take some photos of the Vulcan as she flew over Lincoln on her farewell tour.  

I made up for it last year by taking a video of the Vulcan escorted by the two remaining flying Lancasters ... 

(sorry Mods, this has gone way off topic).
