Friday the 13th, but I had all the luck in the world! The most magnificent sunrise I have ever seen, and luckily the characteristic shape of the 747 was right in front of it.

I think this is an excellent shot because it's airline photography, but in a very artistic way.

The engine seems to be on fire but it's just the bending of the light from the sun by the heat from the engine. Great shot

Impressive. It is delighting to see how this shot ensnares the colors of dawn and the silhouette of such a beautiful aircraft. Note how the heat haze produced by engine #2 reflects the rising sun.

BTW, have the Australian Commonwealth Bank bought this photo from you? Because I saw very similar (or maybe the same) photo on one of their advertisements.
This photo is legendary!

If this is what happened on 13th friday, i think it should be the luckiest date in the world. the 747 only adds to the marvel of the sunset

Gee, sunrise?! Wonderful! Initially, in the thumbnail I thought it was sunset! .. I like to compare with your other picture (ID: 1217506) "The serene atmosphere a few minutes before sunrise", also very beautiful. 5*
