Recent Photos That Made You Say "wow"

Wed Nov 18, 2009 11:16 am

As the latest thread became overcrowded and has troubles loading in some browsers, here's a new edition. You know the rules:

1. Recent picture
2. No self plugs
3. one picture per post.

To start with, here's a splendid photo by Ben Cooper that deserves far more hits:

Yes, on the old thread I couldn't see past reply #109, so I couldn't respond. Thanks for restarting.

So very glad you did because I haven't seen this one. Very artistic and of course beautiful!

Alot on Anet makes me say wow, but here's the photo that made me say wow AND has way too few views!

The colors are great. Angle is perfect for a rotation shot!! Not to mention, the A330 looks great in the DL livery.

This also may me go wow - for being such a unique image. What might have been if Lockheed was the chosen one of the US SST designs - and not the over-ambitious Boeing.

We might have seen these in the air. Interesting to see it. I wonder if the mock-up still exists?

And along the L2000 lines, here is another one from Herb Greenwood:

On the one above, I love how the RWY numbers are perfectly framed in the shot too! Great.

This one, without a doubt has got the WOW factor.

Kas, I've been around Boston for a several years now, never seen anything like that cloud formation. I have to give myself a little credit though  Wink , I saw this photo awhile ago, and I finally convinced Rudy to upload it. I told him that Anet is trying to expand more with some creative shots and that he should upload. Needless to say, I'm glad it got in and I didn't look stupid!

That really did catch my eye.  Smile What a superb photograph. The angle, the light - the positioning of the two planes. I love it.  Smile

Those IRIAF people, there must be a lot to be made for one or more of them to get together and write a book about their experiences working with and flying this beautiful old plane.  Smile

I lived in Boston for the first 18 years of my life, and for about 4 years on and off since then, and I've never seen anything like that cloud formation either! Looks like something you'd see out in the midwest or something.

On a personal note, I'd like to say a big "thank you" to those two, and to all other BOS photographers, for enabling me to keep in touch with home through their photos. It actually means a lot to me, and makes me feel a bit closer to home.
