A selfie taken by a British fighter pilot flying an RAF Hawk T2, shown above, has been nominated for a photography award.
Corporal Tim Laurence snapped the cockpit photo while flying over Anglesey in north Wales during a training sortie.
The image was nominated in the Peoples’ Choice category in the annual RAF Photographic Competition.
Over 1,000 photos and 25 videos were submitted by military and civilian photographers alike across 13 categories before being whittled down by a panel of judges.
Here’s another entry:
Corporal Laurence had three photos that made the final nine nominations, including this aerial shot of the RAF centenary:
One of the judges, James Vellacott from Cherry Duck Studios, said: “Some real skill has gone into these images, as I know you only get that one shot sometimes to get it right.”
Fellow judge and picture editor at The Guardian Jim Hedge added: “The stuff that makes the best photos is the stuff that you guys (RAF) do day in day out.”
