Is that a Mk IX? If so I would like it.

A later model, the Mk XIX, or at least one with the Griffon engine.

You are indeed correct about the variant of this Spitfire and it is indeed a Griffon powered variant, though technically it is refered to as a PR.XIX rather than just a Mk.XIX. This is because the variant was used for photo reconnaissance. You may have noticed that it has a camera port on the fuselage just behind the canopy. It is clearly visible in my shot of her here. [link] The variant had a pressurised canopy for high altitude flight and did not carry guns so their missions were carried out unarmed. Technically this example does not wear authentic colours for the variant because this paint scheme represents an earlier fighter variant that operated during the South East Asia Campaign. In reality the variant would be painted in all over blue so it could blend in with the sky. Here is a shot of another example of the variant wearing more authentic colours for the type. [link]

Nice, thank you for the info. I know little about prop planes, so it's nice to know someone who does!

Thank you all for the nice comments and the favs. I feel very honored to have received a first Daily Deviation! Special thanks to ^xbastex for featuring me.
I'm just a starting photographer, and this gives me a good confirmation that I should go on with photography. So expect more!

Well done on the DD, it's a beautiful shot of Christophe Jacquard's Spitfire and fully deserving of the DD. It's great that the shot highlights the pilot as it is always nice to see the human element of these aircraft.
