I don’t like to go into sophistry in photo techniques. Firstly because so many other photographers do it, I don’t want to join the queue. Secondly, there are so many different views and approaches one cannot expect everyone to follow the same rules all the time and think everyone is mistaken for doing things in a different way.
Returning to historic traditions airplanes again took over the sky above Budapest with an air show of both military and civilian aviation. They made everything imaginable to make viewers standing on the two banks of river Danube drop their jaws in amazement.
This year there was terrible heat on the weekend of the Kecskemet Air Show, that meant a special challenge for both viewers and photographers. It wasn’t an easy task to wander around with the heavy photo equipment in the 37 degree Celsius. I guess it wasn’t easy for the pilots either however in the air they probably felt much better than people on the ground.
This year none of the pilots were allowed to make the fly under landmark Chain Bridge which became a tradition bound to the race. However the operative branch overseeing security measures of the event did allow the flights under the bridge, organisers of Red Bull decided not to take the risk considering the high water level of the river and the high amount of debris it carries with it. They didn’t want to risk adding some airplane parts to it.
