Remark Photographer
PH-KCI / CI-009 (cn 48563/593) The epitome of harmony between man and nature. Thousand of pounds of aluminiam coexisting peacefully with a flock of birds. The groundfog and many condensation trails only add to the moment.

The MD-11 is the only plane I can think of that's more photogenic than the 777-200, and here you have perfectly captured why that is.

Wow... What a shot! The colors of the day and the a/c make it look like a painting.

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Mon November 27, 2006:
Beautiful effect thanks to the lighting. The silouhette gives the MD-11 a svelte bird-like quality. All in all great shot, one of the better ones seen here.

A visitor from Norway posted Tue December 13, 2005:
Beautiful photo. But the remark is only true unless you attempt to imagine the sound of the MD-11 "peacefully" taking off next to the flock of birds ; )

A visitor from Kuwait posted Tue December 13, 2005:
Simply amazing!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Tue December 13, 2005:

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue December 13, 2005:
I agree with the pothographer! Wonderful and excellent picture. Thelightconditions, fog and birds are "everything" in this photo.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue December 13, 2005:
