Default Winter Plane Spotting

It's bloody cold hanging out at an airfield in the middle of winter. But the reward is beautiful lighting that renders crisp and clear images. Took these images of regional jets departing a couple of weeks ago at CVG.

Nikon D300s + Nikkor 70-200 f.2.8 + Nikkor 1.4 T/C.


Was also trying to photograph this Polar 747 taxiing out for it's flight to Anchorage when a American Eagle ERJ crossed the lens. While the ERJ is not quite in focus, I thought it made for an interesting size comparison of the two aircraft. Also very fitting that I photographed a "Polar" aircraft against a snow laden background....Brrr.

Indeed a great picture for comparizon. What a "behemot" the 747 is


"Every man", he says thoughtfully, "should pull a boat over a mountain once in his life". And then, once again, he laughs at himself. (About Werner Herzog) TTL Photography (True To Life Pictures) My Zenfolio Photo site is at http://torgnydellsen.zenfolio.com/

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.
