It’s a new year, and as usual there is that odd period between Christmas and going back to work where you don’t really know what day it is. Given my love for Duxford and the Imperial War Museums, my wife got me a membership. With this in hand, I decided to spend a day wandering around by myself as I have done a number of times in the past few years.


I won’t lie, it was largely the same as the last time I went there, but in all honesty, that’s not why I do it. I’m a man who likes to wander, Duxford allows me to do that. It’s a nice way to kill several hours (this visit was around 4 hours), especially when you are on your own. I could go here a number of times a year and still be quite happy.

The cameras came with me, as usual, but I decided this year to lead with my wide angle, with my 18-200 as back up. My plan was to try and get photo’s I haven’t taken before. I wanted to use of the wide angle in the tight spaces around the planes.

I apologise if any of these are duplicates of what I have shown before, but I hope you like them none the less.

That’s the end of this trip to Duxford, but as I said, nothing new.

It was a nice wander, and as a result I got a number of shots I liked. I certainly look forward to the next one.

Finally, I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and as always, thanks for looking.
