Red Arrows, Hampshire, by Andrew Jones

"Standing at the centre of the Red Arrows display was a thrilling experience, with the aircraft often passing at low level directly overhead as they performed their manoeuvres. The display took place half an hour before sunset, and the low evening light helped to provide some excellent conditions for photography. The main image (left) shows the effect the evening light had from some angles, turning the white smoke trails amber. Although the late evening sun was turning the clouds pink, the deeper red seen here in the main image comes from the dispersed red smoke trail from an earlier manoeuvre."
