Aviation Photo #2518558 Airbus A380-842 - Qantas

When the alarm goes at 4.30am, I sometimes question for a moment the point of getting up so early to capture morning shots before the sun is up. Its only when you get a result like this that it all becomes so worth while! Here 'QJ' glides over the Cooks river for a landing on 16R 45 mins before sun up (Nikon D3)

Beautiful. The effect is such that I thought the photo was taken from another aircraft, above the clouds.

To my eyes, the A380 looks like a "Flying-Pig", but this is a stunning image. It needs to be made into a poster!!

Great picture. The light on the engines and on the fuselage along with the background make this picture unique and breathtaking.
I like the look of the A380 - it really has grown on me.

Absolutely stunning. I just cannot believe how easy you make it look. I have tried photos like this only to fail miserably. This is a low light at it's best. The high contract Kangaroo makes it all the better. Elegance, grace, and beauty all in one. Thanks for sharing Jason. And a shout out to that hardworking alarm clock of yours.
