Last Friday I went to Hatton Cross with some rolls of Provia 100F to get some pics but noticed that the runway at that place was used for takeoffs and this was no use for me. I tried to walk to the parallel runway but I got a bit lost and I ended up with no photos and many rolls that needed to be placed in the refrigirator again! I need help. I searched for some LHR maps but the distancesare very big and I will probably get lost if I attempt to walk around the airport again. Are there any standard days and hours when I can get approach shots from Hatton Cross? I also noticed that there are some pedestrian bridges over the roads near Cross. Is it ok to stand there or will I get in trouble (police etc)? Finally I would like to know if 135mm will do the job because I am seriously thinking of buying a longer lens.
Thanks for any replies. I will try again this weekend so I appreciate any feedback.
