Late fall here at LAX can be one of the best times of the year to shoot. The sun is tracking low in the northern hemisphere which illuminates departures as well as arrivals aircraft with that great end of the year light. Here we see an American MD-82 holding short of 25R for departing aircraft, while an Aer Lingas A330 is being pulled out of the alleyway in preparation for departure on 24L. To the right of frame Swiss 40 is seconds from TD on 24R.
