YESSSSSSSS!!!! I hope this doesn't come off as bragging but im so excited that I finally got my first top of the day photo. When I took this photo I was pretty angry because the aircraft departed about 25 minutes late and almost all the sunlight was gone...and how ironic that it would be this popular. I actually thought it would get bad dark.

Ralph,

Didn't think much of it until Cameron had to tell me that I lost top of the day yesterday because of your shot  eek . Regardless your shot was far better and the final result shows just that.

Congratulation! All we need now is for Danny to get up there!

Take care Ralph,

Matt

Thanks to all for the wonderful comments...I missed the oppurtunity to shoot this BBJ last January at VNY as it departed about 15min after finishing my spotting, im glad it came back.

Congrats Ralph, it must feel great. I look forward to my first top of last 24!


You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

Absolutely gorgeous aircraft, and a nice shot too. I hit it, and it's the wallpaper on my MDW computers!

you got yourself a very nice shot there!

Great lighting and a good exposure.
Don't feel bad when you can "only" catch a bird in this evening light.
Some guys specially go out at dawn to take these kind of shots  Wink

Anyway, keep these nice shots coming!

Thanks all for the comments on this one. It was a tough one. My camera slammed several times to the window during this VERY bumpy approach into TUS.
