Really great shot, even if I see this things every day, being a 744 pilot, I love to see pictures like this, they really make me love my job! For the person who said that this flight is going to YVR, he could be right, because there is a lot of light in the picture and going to YVR you usually get light during all the flight, so I can really think it is going to the W.American/Canadian coast. Again, Really nice shot!

The contrails and the stark contrast of the aircraft over the barren "wasteland" of ice-covered Greenland really evokes to me the true feeling of commercial aviation and linking people around the world.

Excellent shot. But certainly not LH 492/3 FRA-YVR service as speculated above as this would be a 744 during summer (at least this year). Considering that this is well over continental Greenland I would venture to say that this is MUC/SFO service. The engines really point at a 346 if you look at the picture in large...

Magnificent scenery with the airplane and contrails so perfectly crossing the upper third of the photograph. The 'inhospitability' of the terrain stands out, yet the crossing of our humanity has conquered those obstacles. The 'hint' of the glacier moving along it's path, between the rugged mountains. A very spectacular sight. Great picture Eric.

A composition in white. The plane is positioned almost perfectly in the frame, allowing it to be framed by the mountains in the background. If it had been one wingspan lower, it would have been incredible, withthe contrail streaming over the unsullied glacier, the scalloped edges of the ice echoing the water vapor. It's amazing how that tail jumps out at you from the white landscape.

I really like the way the airplane is off center, up in the corner. The focus of the picture is the beautiful but desolate landscape, and then there is this beautiful aircraft (340's are very nice to look at) which contrasts nicely - man versus nature but nature is the center. What really wraps this one up is the color scheme of the plane which blends nicely with with surroundings. A big red plane would detract too much from the surroundings. Nicely done!
