Since it had been so long, we figured it would be a good place to head to for another photography challenge.
I met up with Mark G at the Aviation part of Motat (Rob wasn't allowed to look at planes...) and then caught up with Rob and his wife Yvonne at the main Motat site.
The main thing I wanted to see in the aviation part was the Lancaster...
But the Bomber Command memorial is also here along with a statue of Sir Keith Park.
A few other shots from the exhibit:
And a couple of models on display (Fleet Air Arm):
Then it was into the main site. Lots of old stuff! :-) So lots of B&W or sepia made easy with Silver Efex Pro 2.

A good fun day. I'm glad I took my tripod, particularly around the Lancaster. I found I couldn't be too bothered using it much around the rest of Motat and it just became a hassle.
The one thing that I should have taken was my polariser! Didn't even think about it as it's normally packed with all my camera stuff anyway.... but I took my smaller bag. It would have been interesting to try using the polariser to overcome some of the glare in a few of the photos.
As for Motat, it was still pretty cool. Although some parts are looking a little tired and old. Pretty cheap day out with $16 for entry to both sites and the tram ride included. I don't feel the need to head back for some time though.
Interested in feedback as always.
Thanks for looking :-)
