A slight mis-calculation, perhaps?  Wink

Manas started shooting shortly after 9/11 when all of us were trying to laylow. A combination of bad timing and his enthusiasm earned him the nickname "cop magnet" with us locals.  Big grin

Here is to you, Manas, a great achivement indeed.  champagne  You came a long way from the days of that P&S Canon and the stupid questions!  Wink

He probably thought that heat haze and local plant life would kill the shot, which would have made a nice 747 his no. 2000.  Wink

Congrats.
