That's amazing! I live in Long Ashton, and I'm very fortunate that the Red Arrows fly literally over my house every year, but I've never managed to capture a photo like this. It's purely incredible. Great photo x

Beautiful picture! I saw them for the first time by chance a few months ago. The sky gets so full of whatever is in the coloured trails - I guess that's what makes this photo seem a bit like a painting. This effect wasn't apparent in the photos I'd seen of them before. Congrats on the DD :)
