Fuel Nozzle

Last year we spent sometime at the Aeropark at East Midlands Airport, which is an area with lots of old planes on show, and a bank from which commercial flights can be seen taking off.

I had seen this refuelling nozzle on the top of a military plane and when the dark sky, which preceded a heavy shower, was in the right place I took this shot.

The red looks fantastic against the dark grey sky. Good crop too - nice and simple.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, unfortunately the dark sky opened up shortly after and we had to run for cover!
Ingrid has said it all!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Bill, my word did it rain shortly after!
Simple but effective Brian, what was the plane the curve of the body reminds me of a Buccaneer but I did not think any were parked over there.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, it is a Buccaneer and I also have a shot of the cockpit set against the dark sky, perhaps I will post that one day.

Ahaah.. the Buccaneer was one of the many Airfix kits I built when I was knee high to a grasshopper! The red nozzle really stands out against the grey cloud.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I might show a bit more of the plane in a few weeks time.

Exactly! I LOVE the crop and the red against that sky, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, it was the red tip that first caught my eye. Oh boy did it rain a few minutes later!
Strong composition. I like photos that make me guess.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian without the brooding sky sky it wouldn't be such a strong picture I feel.
