Who said "As big as a cloud" describing Mriya? Nothing compares to those gorgeous nature's creatures - even this "poor little bird" :)

Thats a truly epic shot! You are so right, mother nature creates miracles every single day, as it takes years for us to engineer something tiny as an airplane...

Situation and composition, as a previous commenter said. I tell photography students that an image should tell a story -- and this one surely does!

Wow. Love it, love it, love it! Good to see the screeners are finally allowing more art shots like this. Not too long ago this shot would have been rejected for "bad distance". Good to see that A.net is starting to get a clue about great shots like this one. Thanks for sharing it. - Brett

The Antonov in the center ties the whole thing together. It wouldn't be the same picture with any other plane!

Goes to show how even the greatest things technology can produce can't compare to the divine works of God.

Looks like a little insect in front of these clouds.

So peaceful. This is one of the rare ones where the aircraft is utterly incidental. The backdrop is the star and anything flying, from a seagull to a Cessna would have had the same effect. Thanks so much for how this made me feel.
