Incredible shot! I love the vegitation in the foreground, and vortexes off the wings/engines. The tails of the jets in the back provide some good color contrast.

What a dramatic shot. Very interesting perspective using the mountains as a backdrop. With the runway being hard to pick out, looks like this jumbo is just clearing the terrain.

This is a brilliant capture of an object, an interesting foreground, and an even more impressive background .
Still this will be one the few 747-400F flights by NCA to stop at PANC on their way to Europe, due to an increasing administrative fuss in and out the US .

From the lighting to the parallels between the profile of the plane and the shilouette of the mountains, the composition of this photo is incredible.

Nice photo. When I first saw the thumbnail I somehow immediately knew it was taken in Anchorage - I suppose the it's the surroundings that are so distinctive.

It looks like take off from rough snowfield; nice tricky photograph. the sunshine from the back is better to shot this photo.

The setting is perfect with the snowy mountain background, the foreground vegetation sunlighted gives depth, and the capture of the condensation ripple over the 747 wings, i'd say this is an excellently timed photo.

This gives you a sense of the power of a jumbo jet as it reaches for the sky in all its glory with the backdrop of those majestic mountains. And you see the whole plane from wingtip to wingtip which is always nice. Well done.

Wonderful use of background scenery and light. . .the awesome sight of a 747 taking off in golden light with vapor trailing off the wings is breathtaking. Great juxtaposition of aircraft with foreground.

Amazing - the close and nearness to ground as it seen here makes the impression very strong - the lifting of such big machine from
ground to the air !

The back lighting highlights the vapor being squeezed from the cold morning air. The obvious curl of the wing indicates a heavy takeoff. The raw power necessary to lift this huge machine into the air is highlighted by the tall snow capped mountains in the background.
