P365 – Day 336 – up in the sky
Posted On 2 December 2011
This afternoon, just after lunch, we were treated to an aerobatic display by the Air Force Roulettes, which are in town for the celebrations of the 200th Anniversary of the Anglesea Barracks.
It was spectacular to watch and we got a great view, especially when they were passing over the top of us.
It was, as you might expect, very hard to take any decent pictures of the display on my phone camera due to the distance and the fact that I can’t actually see what I’m taking a picture of when I point the phone at planes flying overhead. So I just clicked away and hoped that the planes were in the shot, then cropped and edited them afterwards.
And afterwards . . .
We went to the Farm Bar at Two Metre Tall. This was Andrew Marshall’s debut for the Farm Bar season. After his nifty dancing last time, Juniordwarf was looking forward to seeing Andrew perform.
Given his new fascination with guitars, Juniordwarf was very interested in watching Andrew set up his equipment, and he was fascinated by the didgeridoo and the sounds it made.
It was a lovely relaxing way to spend what turned out to be a very nice summer evening. I think we can look forward to spending more time there over the next few months.
Those Roulettes are amazing aren't they? I got decent photos of them about six years ago by setting my camera on continuous shoot and just following the planes across the sky. I like Juniordwarf's interest in that didgeridoo.
