Remark Photographer
9V-SFG (cn 26558/1173) Ever since I started taking photos, I wished to one day capture my dad in action. It finally happened in winter light with beautiful New Zealand landscape. I couldn't ask for more!

Great story behind, i'm touched.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 2, 2011:
Did your Dad know you were there? Almost looks like he is dipping a wing to say hello... Crosswind I am sure but it looks like a wing dip to say hi :) Phenomenal picture and moment for both of you I am sure, thanks for sharing.

Fab shot!

A visitor from Belgium posted Mon October 17, 2011:
5 Stars for the story behind it, and off course a wonderful photo!

A visitor from - posted Fri October 7, 2011:
One of my instant favorites Kavin, as well as my new desk top. Vibrant greens and the long shadow cast by the tree set the mood. Thanks to you, and your Pop!

A visitor from Thailand posted Tue September 20, 2011:
Go green! :) Outstanding!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 15, 2011:
Our dad is one lucky guy to fly that monster!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 8, 2011:
Wonderful contrast, great!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 27, 2011:
This is an absolutely incredible photograph in so many ways; capturing one's father flying a 747 is fantastic (BTW, thanks for sharing that with us Kavin) The beautiful landscape is bathed in sunlight, while above the plane appears to be very "ominous" weather! A very rare photo indeed. Charley

A visitor from - posted Wed July 27, 2011:
Fantastic combination of light and colour. Great aircraft, great airline, great picture. Congratulations !!

A visitor from - posted Mon July 25, 2011:
Beautiful shot, Mr. Kowsari. One of the rare moments when AKL has splendid weather. I lived in NZ for a couple of years, and I barely see this sort of weather while chillin' out at the Airport. And kudos to your father, wonderful approach there. :D

A visitor from - posted Mon July 25, 2011:
Just fantastic and I'm very happy for both of you!!! Well done and a very nice tribute Kavin!!! Roger C.

Guess your best day ever(yet?)

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon July 25, 2011:
Yeah, very beautiful landscape, nice light, all great! Indeed deserves 5* (sure, also considerating the moment dad/son) ;-)

A visitor from - posted Sun July 24, 2011:
Lovely and lively picture. With dark Background, and the Sunshine illuminating the big bird, and the grass land , it is a feast for eyes.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun July 24, 2011:
Great point of view, congratulations, great capture!

A visitor from Singapore posted Sun July 24, 2011:
A labour of love and one of the most stunning and pleasing shots I have seen in a.net and elsewhere in many years! A fitting tribute and dedication to your dad.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 24, 2011:
When someone you know is a pilot for an airline it's really cool. To be able to capture a photo of them during one of the challenging moment in an every day flight with them at the controls is a real special moment. I can see your dad cherishing this photo. Beautiful Photo, well done!

A visitor from - posted Sun July 24, 2011:
Aw nice story to go with this great pic.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 24, 2011:
Great pic its all about New Zealand scenery. But where's your dad?

A visitor from - posted Sun July 24, 2011:
WOW!! Lucky chap...I am not lucky enough to photograph my Dad and his "Mechanical Girlfriend".

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 23, 2011:
I bet that gave you more then a few goose bumps.Well done

A visitor from - posted Sat July 23, 2011:
Probably the best picture I have ever seen on Airliners.net! Congrats on this capture, the lighting is stunning!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 23, 2011:
Awesome pic and a great dedication for your Dad. Print out a glossy hi-def version of this, frame it and give it to him! Forget A380 this is a real mans plane.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 23, 2011:
Very cool shot, the landscape is terrific. The perspective makes the aircraft look as if it's landing in the field. And even better to have your dad at the controls, that's special. Don't lose this pic. - great memories are in store.

A visitor from France posted Sat July 23, 2011:

Indeed, the emotion behind this photo talk for itself!
Happy landings to your dad, flying that beautiful bird! ;)

A visitor from - posted Fri July 22, 2011:
Reading the information on the shot, I assume that your dad is flying the beast?? If so it would be such a thrill!!! Wonderful capture!!!

A visitor from - posted Fri July 22, 2011:
