[Canon 7D + Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM] The conventional wisdom is to not take pictures of backlit aircraft when it's cloudy out. But if the aircraft passes through a beam of sunshine, which is reflected off the water, the results can be stunning.

Astonishing picture Cary!
Really, congrats... a great picture.
The "threatening" background and those reflections make the shot.
It seems to be surrounded by a surreal halo! LOL

It's a shot of opportunity but you also got a lot out of it: the right moment at the right place, good focus, right speed, good camera and things like that that make your pothograph a superb one

Really stunning view, very beautiful reflections up and down! Good catch 5*
Photography aside, I have a doubt: are those engines abnormally large if compared, for example, with the engines of the 747??..
