To travel approx. 2300 km to take a picture of an GB A320 (which is, in addition, the only movement during the whole day) sounds crazy. But if you 'add' Gibraltar as destination it becomes worth the trip! ... the panoramic view on top of the rock is simply awesome!

A combination including Big waves little people and camera angle make this shot quite ubusual and worthy praise. To have travlled over 2000kms and only had one movement on the day and caught this image in sharp focus as the aircraft passed the shoreline is extraordinay. Well done Robert.

Congratulations on an amazing shot! The sense of motion, of both the aircraft and the waves is amazing, along with the thrust from the powerful engines and the gear retracting.

Having had the pleasure of being in both these positions, both from where you took the photograph and inside the Aircraft performing that exact same departure its an amazing experience. The wheels lift off and 3 seconds later you are over the sea amazing shot.

Explanation speaks on its own.... beautiful picture, shows the solitude of beaches in the winter and planes as transportation that brings thousands of people in summertime.

Very nice angle. Very sharp focus. A lot of detail in the image. Do wonder where he got this shot from? Certain not atop the Rock of Gibraltar, which does offer a great view. If yes, what an awesome lens!
