Default Plane looking photo

I was near the airport tonight, zoomed in at 8x optical freehand and panned/focused.

RAW converted to JPG, cropped and scaled to 1000x502 (463KB) and sharpened 0.8

I think the guy in the window by the wing is not wearing his seatbelt :lol:

Comments welcome as always;

Oh I like that

Now.. I need to goto the airport and try doing stuff like that.

Where abouts do they allow you to get close to the runways anyway

And I am assuming you mean YVR

Hi Gimli,

That photo was taken at Iona Beach, located on the west side of the YVR airport. I wasn't intending to capture planes but this one was quite close so I maxed the zoom and grabbed it

Here is another plane, not as large though;

I love airplane pictures! I wish I had a dime for every hour I spent back in the early '80s on the South perimiter of Stapleton Intl. trying to get "just the right shot". Your shots take me back to those days with fond memories.

Nice shots, two thumbs up from me.

Jim

Excellent picture. It almost looks as if it was frozen in mid-air. Say smile now! hehe
