Very hard to get the right combination and timings for this result, so I was pleased how it came out.

I was just admiring the aircraft through the lens rather than expecting anything to come out when I realised that it was pretty spectacular and managed a few frames, only one of which was really sharp.

It has to be this one for me, because this flight was my first aerobatic experience, which left me high for the next couple of days. Thanks again, Erik. Also, I'm quite proud of this shot.

Normally, I would have chosen one of my favorite aircraft (the Phantom), certainly this year when there is one flying around with my age on its tail  Smile ,

but this striking tail-art is the absolute winner for me:

A very rare spotting opportunity for me. Unfortunately the weather and/or my skills did not do it justice. Could not get it into the database, but it captures the atmosphere of the day for me, so for that reason it is at the top of my list.

Gave this lots of thought...had lots of highlights this year, many good flights, the 787 factory visit, finally shot both the Alaska 75th Retro jet and Salmon Thirty Salmon, but I think this was my favorite. Some hardwork and a little bit of luck went a long way (the ramp access didn't hurt, either).

It has every thing that is important to me in a good shot; great light, no clutter, side-on, nice colors, and a rare (for me) subject.

Chose this one because as Swiftski and TupolevTu154 ran for cover when a torrential downpour started, under a nearby tree, I stood my ground and got the shots. The screeners obviously didn't recognise my dedication for the cause...  grumpy

When a.net sent me an e-mail congratulating me on my 500th accepted photo earlier this year, it included a line from one of the editors stating that they enjoy my Bahamian aerial photos/wing views most. I have to admit that, provided the scenery adds to the photo, I love wing views, too. A little while later, I uploaded this shot, and for 2008, it's probably my favourite so far.
