RAF Leuchars Airshow 2011 – A Photo Feature Series (Part 2)

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

In our previous post on the RAF Leuchars Airshow 2011 we showcased the aerobatics team of the French Air Force, the Patrouille de France.

Following on from there we thought it only apt that, in this the second part of the series, we showcase the aerobatics team of the Royal Air Force.

Hope these images help bring to life the spectacle that is The Red Arrows.

There was a palpable sense of poignancy as they performed on the day and these images are our tribute to the pilots, past and present, of the Red Arrows. Gallop over to our story, The Reds, as featured on the DSLRBLOG to read more…

Till next time, take care and gallop free.

Hello 2012

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

Wow!!! February’s already here… Barely have we had time to awaken from the slumber of the holiday season, rub our eyes and start focusing on the year ahead when we find ourselves at the start of the month of Love.

At the outset, we would like to wish you all, albeit a bit late, a very Happy 2012 from Black Stallion Country. Here’s hoping that the Year of the Dragon proves to be one that’s filled with wisdom, prosperity and happiness.

January has been a pretty eventful month and hence we thought we should bring you all up to speed with all that’s happening in Black Stallion Country:

1. Three of our images (A New Day, Lunar Phase and Eurofighter Typhoon – Saltire) were featured as the ‘Photo of the Day’ in the Light and Composition Magazine.

2. Three of our images (as seen below) were published in The Herald* as the ‘Picture of the Day’.

* – The Herald Scotland is a broadsheet newspaper published in Glasgow and available throughout Scotland.

3. We published three projects (Autumn Series 1 and 2 and The Reds) on our online Portfolio.

In addition to this, we officially launched our Corporate Event and Wedding Photography services in Scotland this month. So feel free to drop us a line if you’d like us to photograph an upcoming Corporate Event or Wedding. We must, at this point, add that we are open to taking on other photography assignments and would gladly undertake specially commissioned work as well.

So as you can see, Black Stallion Country has been awash with activity be it at a slow, sleepy pace.

All that’s left for us to say is Thank You – and we truly mean that. To each and every one of you who reads our blog, visits our website,  follows us on Twitter, is a fan of ours on Facebook and regularly visits us online, to you all we bow down in gratitude. If it were not for you, we would not have had and will not continue to have the energy and motivation that keeps us going. We hope to enthrall you with even better images in 2012…

Till next time, take care and gallop free.

Sarang – AERO India 2011

Hello Fellow Gallopers,

I happened to be in Bangalore (India) around the time when AERO India, a biennial air show and aviation exhibition, was held at the Yelahanka Air Force Station. The air show offered a great opportunity to see the might of the fighter jets on the one hand and the grace of the aerobatics teams on the other. One such aerobatics team that performed at AERO India 2011 was the Sarang.

Sarang, which means Peacock (hence the peacock design on the sides of the chopper), is the helicopter formation display team of the Indian Air Force. Formed in 2003, the team flies four Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Dhruv helicopters. The Dhruv is a utility helicopter that meets both military and civil operator requirements. The military variant performs the roles of transport, utility, reconnaissance and MedEvac. The name Sarang is symbolic in itself as the peacock is the national bird of India.

This was the first time I had witnessed a helicopter formation display team in action and I must admit I was pretty amazed at some of the maneuvers. As you view the images below, I hope you will be amazed too 🙂

 

Till next time, take care and gallop free.
