Aside from my extensive remastering work this year (over 500 photos remastered up to this point!) I have only made a handful of visits to Wellington International Airport since the last post on the subject, and all of those within the last 5 weeks. To be precise, 4 visits in Read more…
Once again, as on previous occasions, I have revisited one of my air show galleries — Wings Over Wairarapa 2009 — and reprocessed all the photos using DxO PhotoLab 3. PhotoLab is not the perfect photo processing tool, but it scores highly over every other one I’ve tried in getting Read more…
Following on from prior album remasterings, I have turned my attention to my Wings Over Wairarapa 2013 album. I had recently added an extra six photos and these were to my modern standards, which made them stick out in the album. Also, I had recently been reminiscing about the De Havilland Read more…
As per my prior remastering of my Wings Over Wairarapa 2015 photos, I’ve done the same thing for those from Omaka’s Classic Fighters 2017 show. Many shots are more closely cropped for a better view of the aircraft and hopefully the white balance is a bit better on some shots. Read more…
I didn’t realise it at the time, but the pictures I published mid-October of the Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200ER would be my last of the type at Wellington. Only 9 more flights followed that one before the type was retired from the route. While it was quite exciting to have Read more…
It’s been a while since I visited Wellington Airport with the sole purpose of taking photographs, but today was such a day.
This is a small update to draw your attention to a handful of new pictures I have just posted. They result from a long weekend away in Rotorua. There are so few photos, I’ll include them all here.
I’ve finally published the last of 174 photos I took in Singapore in April. The last batch are 38 taken at Changi Airport on our last day.
A recent two week holiday included a week in Singapore. I took the opportunity on one of the last days there to pay a visit to The Air Force Museum at Paya Lebar Air Base, one of many homes of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).
When I was last out at Wellington Airport, I got chatting to a chap who, when I mentioned my web site, said “You should do calendars!” It seemed like a good idea and a good time, so I’ve done it.
Having recently switched to a new application for processing my photos, I’ve been getting used to new ways of performing adjustments and, sometimes, looking for a slightly creative edge.
Here it is. Probably my final post of 2018 and bringing me bang up to date. Wellington got a special visitor on Christmas Eve in the shape of Air New Zealand’s first Airbus A321neo, ZK-NNA.
In what I had hoped to be my final catch-up post, I will show you a selection of types I have captured in the latter half of 2018 out at ‘my local’ — Wellington International Airport. But there’s yet another catch-up post to come with a rather special new type. Keep your eyes peeled for another post soon.
In my second catch-up post, I’ve included a handful of shots from a brief trip I made to Auckland in September.
Forgive my not posting here in a long, long time. That thing called life has been getting in the way of having time to process all my photos, let alone write about them. But the wait is over.
I was looking for a photo the other day and it occurred to me I could probably have found it quicker if I had my Flickr albums organised by airline. (Some of my older photos aren’t tagged brilliantly.)
It’s been a while! My last post was in November and it’s now well into March. I’ve not had a lot to share since then but thought it worth an update now.
Undoubtedly to cater for demand resulting from the football world cup match held in Wellington today, Air New Zealand laid on some extra flights including two from Auckland to Wellington using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, ZK-NZF.
