One aspect of shooting with the big glass that I really enjoyed which I’ve not been able to do in the past is follow aircraft more closely. This gorgeous F8F Bearcat is seen here landing and then later, much further down the ramp pulling into the pits. Neither shot is possible with 400mm, the image size is simply too small. Changing up glass, smart thing to do at times. I hit 35k images for Reno today and this is the first time to use the 600mm. Sometimes it takes a 2×4!
