Patience certainly paid off today , shot a set at 10am that delivered nothing , thick hazy cloud , contrails and bad seeing all playing their parts.
Got called out on an "emergency" job so after so wrote the day off . . .
The "emergency" turned out to be a major exaggeration and was sorted in ten minutes . . . customers eh . . .

Conditions improved dramatically in the meantime , the haze thinned , the contrails disappeared and the seeing was much better.
I shot 204 frames to be sure and when going through them I had a job to find a really bad one . . . . . . so to save faffing about I just stacked them all for a laugh . .



1000D + ST120 + ND3.8 + 1.8 x Barlow + UHC + S/L.
1/1600s @ ISO 100 , 204/204 , Reg 5.1 , Gimp2.8.
