1st. PRIZE MACH.82-SEPLA AERONAUTIC PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST 2003. Imagine... everything almost covered by the dark, 'María Guerrero' is cleared for departure and rotates after a really long take off roll. Passes over my head, gear up, and begins to challenge the sky. Suddenly, the sun appears just in time for a second and gives a mysterious light to the scene while the aircraft is creating wingtip vortices and condensation over the wings...Click!

Excellent picture of an excellent plane! Look at the wings taking the strain and the condensation-cloud helps us visualize the massive amounts of lift being created! The *wonder of flight* :-)

That's an stunning shot, transmits the sensation of the flight of something (much) heavier than air. Not to mention the beautifulness of the photograph. Congratulations!
