I was looking through a pile of old family photos when I came across this photograph of a German V2 rocket taken by my father probably sometime in the late 1940's at an air show. It may have been at Farnborough or Biggin Hill. I was there but I don't remember it at all. I know it was fairly soon after the 2nd World War when captured military atifacts were put on show to the general public. It was taken on roll film using a folding Kodak camera.
Something I have been trying to capture for a while is a photo showing Belmont TV tower and the spire of St. James church in Louth on the same view. This is the nearest I have got so far with Belmont on the left and the spire on the right. From where I live only the spire and tower of the church can be seen rising above the valley in which Louth sits.
Needless to say this is an HDR processed mix of three photos which was re-processed in Paintshop Pro to bring out the subjects I wanted as they are easy to spot with the human eye but very difficult for the camera to resolve.
