A moment captured with an evolving artistic eye...


Mind you - the reason I say this - I don't remember the last time I viewed a photo of Sam's with such brilliant athmosphere...

Reminds me of moments captured by Luis...

That's because it is brand new.  Smile Johan has a thread about it in site related if you want to read about it.

BTW I see that Sam's picture has now reached the home page.

Thanks guys you've all been very kind. I just have to say LAX weather pattern not always allow this kind of shot, so I got my chance. Wish to do more next time!

FYI - The aircraft is G-BNLU on flight BA269 - which I take it as being seeing as it is a sunset shot. This flight arrives around 7pm in LAX. Now go and update the photo! Source the LHR Yahoo list (Gives daily movement logs of incoming and departing a/c from LHR)

Great shot!

A really amazing shot Sam! Superb work!

I know it sounds a bit silly to say this, but you've got a dust spot above the sun and number 4 engine, right near the top of the frame. You should probably reupload before people start complaining about how Sam Chui doesn't get baddirty rejections!  silly  Wink

Nice shot Sam, I have a similar one, not taken from the ramp though  Wink

Now lets hope that I have as much luck with the LAX overflights as you have had in the last months!
