Photolog Manchester Airport 15th May 2019

A gorgeous sunny day, and a day off work?
Well, it would be rude not to!

There were a couple of spots I wanted to try out, including the new T2 West car park – as you can see from the photo of the Olympus A321 (and the FedEx B757 on the gallery), photography there is difficult but not impossible.

All in all, a great day out taking the camera for a walk, even if I was aching after!
