A remarkable photograph. The exposure is expert, giving a sense of immediacy that reveals the speed and detail of the aircraft just as the eye would see them. With the juxtaposed view of the trees, the effect is to make the viewer feel right there, hearing the approaching engine sound and feeling the magic, yet everyday, reality of jet flight. Wonderful!
