UFO over Newbury
I was half-way up the drive when I saw it coming over the field. I'd been down on the road takling summertime pictures of the cows in the field, but it took me a moment to realise I had my camera.
And a few more moments while the damn thing warmed up after being switched on, and by that time it was going behind the trees. So I raced up the drive, and caught it just before it went behind the house.
By the time I'd rounded the corner, all that was left was a vanishing dot, which vanished completely by the time I got the camera up.
One shot! And I was convinced I'd blown it. But I hadn't. It doesn't matter if the foreground is blurred - I tracked the UFO perfectly.
And now no-one will believe me, I suppose.
(Well, of course not! It's just a bit of 3D modelling and Photoshop work. I enjoyed it, though. If anyone ever actually reads this - any comments? Anything I could do to make it more realistic?)
