I usually hate short-to-long exposure night catches with light effect but, here, Janne, you successfully send an exceptional feeling with your photo. Simply Excellent, 5*.

I would have sworn it was rain, but reading the caption it is apparently not(?). But how terrific, it's an epic shot, 5 stars!

Thanks for all comments and questions. Weather conditions must be the right kind. Then the frost was -15 degrees, and there was a lot of ice crystals in the air. The equipments was a Canon EOS mark3, and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. Manual adjustments are ISO2000 200mm f/3.2 1/50sec. Ground lighting is necessary. Artificial lights formed a halo effects are quite normal in these latitudes, but the aircraft in front of the less common. Janne

5 stars for the picture. Pity however, the watermark ruined the picture

It´s perfectly frozen on air. I´m surprised about image quality giving the challenging conditions of light and movement. Best regards, FZardini.

I had no idea KLM airplanes were armed - with photon torpedoes, no less! As others have said - a very unique capture that is an instant favorite. I particularly love the lights (all of them) against that beautiful blue sky!
