So beautiful, dragging just a little bit of magic on the wingtips. The photograph captures the sentiment for the 747 program at the time -- flying directly into a beautiful sunset. Sure glad the skies where clear in its path, and the -8 was launched.

The photo is showing clearly the blurry engine exhaust from the "hot" contour and how it gets mixed up with the "cold" engine exhaust and then dissipates.

A breathtaking photo showing the spectacular colors of that dazzling sunset with the contrast of the big bird as it soars away. Among the best posted here. Thanks

Great photograph. You can really appreciate the size and power of the plane with the heat waves out of the engines. Also love the contrast with the orange sky. Overall brilliant shot, one of my favourites.
| A visitor from - posted Thu December 11, 2008:|
The contrasts of different levels of lights and shadows combined with the textures and shapes of the clouds are awesome.
| A visitor from United States posted Wed December 10, 2008:|
Beautiful Shot, Just Amazing!
| A visitor from United States posted Sun October 5, 2008:|
Oh course the color is great but the addition of the hot air from the engines really sets this picture off. The dark clouds at the top and bottom frame this picture perfectly.
| A visitor from Singapore posted Fri July 18, 2008:|
Great Shot! The atmosphere looks quite fiery!
| A visitor from United States posted Thu May 15, 2008:|

Because the lighting in the sky provides a beautiful background
| A visitor from United States posted Fri February 8, 2008:|
Love the lighting reflecting off of the fuselage and the blur behind the engines! Really great photo.

The jet exhaust mixing with the orange sky just seems like such an abstract dream
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed December 13, 2006:|

| A visitor from United States posted Fri October 6, 2006:|
This picture is so beautiful! The orangey sunset looks amazing against the plane!
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri October 6, 2006:|
The colour of the sun setting is striking
| A visitor from Australia posted Thu September 28, 2006:|
This is beautiful
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed September 13, 2006:|
Showing great contrast in an almost inverted fashion. With difference in the colour the fuems distorts the texture creating a more subtle and soft feeling, which adds to the warmth of the picture. This creates a comfotable image that makes you beleive the plane is gliding through the air, rather than using formidable engine force to climb.
| A visitor from Spain posted Fri September 8, 2006:|
Wow.. incredible lighting .
| A visitor from United States posted Tue August 29, 2006:|
This photo is absolutely gorgeous! How it makes me yearn to go wherever she's going! Drama, contrast, texture, movement... It doesn't get better than this!
| A visitor from Singapore posted Mon August 14, 2006:|
What a fantastic shot. Absolutely brilliant. At first I thought its a hot cup of tea with a stir. Just kidding, exceptional shot.

Amazing cloud effects
| A visitor from United States posted Sat July 1, 2006:|
Amazing shot....its an artform
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 20, 2006:|
Brilliant use of colour, the heat haze adds to the composition. It really makes you feel as though you should be on-board.

| A visitor from United States posted Mon June 19, 2006:|
An extremely beautiful shot.
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri April 21, 2006:|
Its like it is emerging out of a sea of fire, the flames are wisping away from the engines in the streamline. The 747 is amazing and this picture shows its true potential. Well done!
| A visitor from Czech Republic posted Wed March 22, 2006:|
| A visitor from United States posted Thu February 16, 2006:|
I love the color of this photo, and it very well silhouetted.

WOW! Just amazing!

What a marvel...! Mother nature and Aviation at its best - TNM
| A visitor from Canada posted Mon January 9, 2006:|
My new desktop picture for years to come. The 744 flies off into the sun.
| A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon January 9, 2006:|
| A visitor from United States posted Mon January 9, 2006:|
Very good exposure of the clouds illuminated by the setting sun, excellent angle on the 744 nearly silhouetted against the clouds. Gives a sense of majesty to the mighty B744.
| A visitor from Belgium posted Sun January 8, 2006:|
Excellent photo ... the effects are exceptionall ... well deserved five star ratings
| A visitor from Canada posted Sat January 7, 2006:|
Wow amazing colors, make you want to just stare at it for hours, really nice contrast with the plane
| A visitor from Germany posted Sat January 7, 2006:|
Extraordinary cloud-sun spectacle
| A visitor from United States posted Sat January 7, 2006:|
Awesome shape of this plane against the sunset.
| A visitor from United States posted Mon November 21, 2005:|
This really flatters the 747's curves. It's usually quite bulbous looking instead of graceful.
