Gee guys, thanks again. And yes Joe, it is Canon!
That one's been kicking around on my hard drive for three months now. I do that sometimes - process a photo, think "nah..." and leave it for ages and finally decide to upload it, usually very late of an evening after I've had one too many beers - "f*** it, that one looks OK
, I'll upload it"! The photo would have been even better it ejazz was the driver!
The photo was taken at one of the best airports in the world for photos... LAS
. Viewing park on Sunset is just great. Rent an SUV
and stand on the roof, or rent a pickup and buy a set of ladders from Home Depot. Either way, you're 6 feet from the fence so no aggro from the local law enforcement. And the viewpoint is just abeam the touchdown point, meaning you can shoot these seriously front on approach shots over the fence without getting the underneath views that characterise places like Myrtle Avenue at LHR
. The other good thing is that the short-final approaches are over a bright sandy area, and light reflected up from the bright sand means that you don't get dark undersides that often characterise approach shots.
