The skill of these pilots. This photo really shows what these pilots deal with day and night thru out the year. Thank god there up to any challenge.

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 9, 2015:
Lets all enjoy these Douglas workhorses while they still ply our skies. Douglas built aircraft to last forever. In every type of weather or adverse flight ops the Mad Dogs delivered.

Fantastic photo !

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 12, 2014:
Just had one of these beasts in our hangar for an engine change..RAW POWER! These kind of shots always make me think of ships plowing through rough waves. Amazing machine captured perfectly.

A visitor from - posted Tue December 10, 2013:
Absolutely mesmerizing!

A visitor from Finland posted Wed July 24, 2013:
Living in Finland means lot of photographing in winter conditions. This is winter action at best!

Cracking shot Ron! Perfectly executed in those horrible wx conditions. Very powerful indeed

So snowy

A visitor from - posted Fri March 15, 2013:
Freezing! It looks like was taken in Siberia

A visitor from Denmark posted Fri March 15, 2013:
Great - I am a MD Captain and this is exactly how it feels...

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 14, 2013:
It is quite unique to get a shot this close at this phase of flight in these weather conditions. I love it!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 14, 2013:
That's just a fantastic shot - well done for being in the right place at the right time and getting the photo in such conditions!

A visitor from - posted Thu March 14, 2013:
This shot shows the grace and beauty of what is now a classic airliner, in a difficult weather situation. Instead of the weather detracting from the photograph, and making it difficult to see the plane, the photographer is close enough that the snow sets off the plane and generally it makes the photo better. If it were not for the ground lighting and markers, the plane could be 5 feet off the ground or FL150.

A visitor from - posted Thu March 14, 2013:
Amazing capture! congrats!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Wow! Old-school MD-88, massive snow, snow-covered runway, right after rotation on takeoff, very dramatic shot !

A visitor from Bangladesh posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Wow. amazing

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Excellent!! Easily in the top 10 of A.net's best shots.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Whoa, Ron. Five stars for the picture and five for being in the right place at the right time. Spec-ta-cu-lar! - Alberto

A visitor from - posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Perfect focus in bad weather conditions. The scale of the image makes you think a wing might knock you over as it goes by. The lights and weather make the whole thing look surreal, almost scary.

A visitor from - posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Fantastic, thank you for being in the cold to bring us this hot photo!

A visitor from - posted Wed March 13, 2013:
25 stars for Rockin' Ron Stella in the snow again !

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
"looks a little grainy to me!" Oh wait. That's a *lot* of snow! You, sir, are a freak. Like the rest of us, for photographing in that kind of storm! Keep it up!

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Great action shot (the weather and the airplane action, that is) :-)

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Standing out in that snow payed off! That is the best shot of an MD-88 I've ever seen!

A visitor from - posted Wed March 13, 2013:
WOW Ron! This is outstanding, so much power!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Love your patience and bravery(standing in a snow storm). And from the angle- incredible how close that tail is to the ground.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Great stuff Ron! Back on the PC Train! - Oliver

A visitor from - posted Wed March 13, 2013:
I think this is the best photograph I have ever seen of an airplane, captures the moment brilliantly. There's nothing better than taking-off in blinding snow. Brilliant

A visitor from - posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Looks like Domodedovo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 13, 2013:
How close can you go?!? Fantastic departure

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 13, 2013:

A visitor from Canada posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Wow Ron! Can't say I'd want to be standing there in the snow, but great shot!

Where you been anyway?


A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Caramba, what a shot. Up close and personal, you can hear the engines, the wind and the thunder.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Capturing this moment during a snow storm is unique.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed March 13, 2013:
WHOOHA! Remote camera? Or did you really stand there? Anyway 5* and my choice today!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Wow. Incredible. 5 stars for the photo - I can't stop looking at it - and 5 stars for you, standing out in a snowstorm to capture it!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed March 13, 2013:
Simply astonishing shot of an airplane stugling with weather and gravity
