Ben mailed me a few months ago to tell me he would be visiting SFO in March and could I assist with some spotting info. This I did and it now looks like Ben has been there and done that! He was also lucky enough to get some 01R landings...now that must have been pretty awesome!  Big thumbs up

Nice shots Ben!

All the best,
Dean

No...no plug! Well...not a gratuitous plug anyway  Wink/being sarcastic

It's just nice, having been asked by someone for spotting info, to later see their shots taken from a spot you might have used at some time and told someone about.

Given the wealth of spotting info on Chris Sheldons site this must happen to him a lot more often than it does me. Now if only he'd tell us where he gets those "into the turn at 2 miles DME" climb out shots at LHR...

Regards,
Dean

Umm was there a drought when Dean went? Ben's photo seems filled with water.

Where is that shot taken from? The walking path by the Westin?

Yup...there are a few benches and a rubbish bin on a little mound...stand on the bench and you get a good view...but you need a longer lens...100-300mm say.

Trade secret that is!  Wink/being sarcastic

Sneak peek at the latest (not my best - from a slightly different spot, and things didn't quite come together the way I hoped. Also not quite as sharp as I would ideally like):



You're right about the emails though - I get a LOT. In fact, that was the reason I first set up the website; so instead of typing the same directions in email after email I could just direct people to the website instead.

Dean said: "I've been to that spot"... "there are a few benches..."

And carved into the wooden bench, it says "DEAN WOZ 'ERE 25 AUG 2001" - so he can prove it Big grin Big grin
