Welly winter wings

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…

Airbus A350 9V-SMH

End of break visit

I’ve been enjoying a three week break from work over Christmas and New Year, but only managed to get in a trip to the airport with camera and sun on Friday. My chief goal was to catch the Singapore Airlines Airbus A350 arriving from one of my usual spots, as I Read more…

Boeing, Boeing, gone

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…

Changi

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 long time coming

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.

Around and about

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.

New Year

With this being the last day of my “holiday” I decided the sunshine was a good reason to head out to Wellington Airport for my first visit of 2017, and just in time to watch the Singapore Airlines 777 landing again.

Any given Sunday

I mentioned back in August that my Flickr album for Wellington Airport was nearing 1,000 images. After a recent cleanup of my photo collection, the album stood at 992 photos. Rather than wait until I had 8 new images to publish, I decided to trawl back through my collection for unpublished gems and they were the subject of my previous post.

Which brings us to the magic 1,000 photos and the promised “something special” to mark the occasion.

From the digital shoebox

As you will see in a subsequent post, my Wellington Airport album on Flickr had nearly reached 1,000 images. Having spent a long time in my photo library of late, I had spotted a few aircraft that never made it to Flickr publication and so to get my album up to the magic 1,000, I decided to trawl through and see if I could find enough of that ilk to hit the mark.

Propstar

I went out to Wellington Airport again today with the express purpose of photographing a Jetstar DHC-8 Q300 which have so far eluded me.

One down

I took a week off work this week and decided to head out to Wellington Airport today to see what would show up, with specific hopes to catch two types I’ve not photographed in action before. I succeeded with one of them.

Welly, Welly, Welly, Oi, Oi, Oi

It was a heck of a weekend just gone, with no less than three visits to Wellington Airport for the purposes of picking up and dropping off family members. As the appointed chauffeur, I took my opportunities to train my camera on activities as time allowed. I did this both from some of my usual spots around the airport and also from inside the terminal.

First of 2016

I managed to mis-time a short trip out to Wellington Airport earlier in the week. Too late to meet up with someone and too early to see much in the way of movements. I only took a handful of shots and three made the grade.
