What a beatful shot
looks like there was no aircraft

A visitor from Germany posted Sun May 6, 2007:
Congratulations for the shot!
Simply nice!

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Mon April 9, 2007:
Exciting! Sharp and bright! Absolutely perfect timing!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 30, 2007:
Another phenomenal time lapse, DJ. I love the illusion of the wingtip lights appearing to "peel off". GREAT job.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 16, 2007:
It's Wonder Woman! :)

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 20, 2006:
Nice shot! The way to do it is to have a manual SLR camera, one with variable shutter settings, a tripod, cable release, and patience. Set your camera up on the tripod, making sure it entirely level, and attach the cable release to the camera. Set shutter speed to 'B', and point the camera at the sky. Wait for a plane to fly into view and press the shutter button, and let got a few seconds later. Simple!

WOW!! Great!! how on earth did you do that?

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 30, 2006:
How on earth did you get only the lights??!!

Great long exposure shot! I'm quite impressed with the low noise in the photo.

For the italian comment, i believe that it's bleu white and red, so it must be ours (french flag)

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 18, 2006:
Its so dramatic, that its almost moving!!

A visitor from Singapore posted Fri February 24, 2006:
Beautiful effect! The details are very clear as well!

A visitor from United States posted Thu February 16, 2006:
Set against the canvas of the night sky and in context to downtown Washington DC, this makes for a very visually striking image.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon January 30, 2006:
Great perspective, being under the approach path with a beautiful clear sky.

P.S. For the comment from the visitor from Lebanon, the remark about "adverse yaw" is rubbish. The 737 has a yaw damper and spoilerons. The pilot flying most likely made a tiny overshoot of the final approach track, no biggie!

A visitor from Turkey posted Sat January 28, 2006:
It is like an air show ;)

A visitor from Lebanon posted Sat January 21, 2006:
Great shot
you can notice a slight "adverse yaw" effect at the beginning of the bank, that is the plane yawing to the right when it banks left. It is a normal aerodynamic reaction that has to be corrected with rudder application.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat January 14, 2006:
What a great shot! Its a nice photograph of log time shot! Nice lights!

A visitor from Italy posted Tue January 10, 2006:
Is it the Italian flag? :-)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 7, 2006:

Great light, exposure

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 12, 2005:
Wonderful shot.... I agree - those do no look at all like 737-400 lights... The first-generation 737s have landing lights half-way out on the wings (on the flap canoes) and this bird does not. Airbus maybe?

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 9, 2005:
EXELLENT!! Great subject matter and outstanding color/exposure balance!!

A visitor from Spain posted Tue November 22, 2005:
My congratulations! I have NO IDEA of how you could of centered this so well! Amazing effect!

A visitor from Germany posted Sat November 19, 2005:
It explains the speed .....

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 19, 2005:
Perfect! This is an inspiration to me to go get some night time exposures. Keep up the great work!

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 19, 2005:
Amazing picture! Nicely done!

A visitor from Australia posted Fri November 18, 2005:
What a great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
The exposure length and the place you chose to take the photograph couldn't be more perfect! KLNS

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Hmm these light don't look like 737-400 landing lights if you ask me.

Still a great photo, though.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Great shot, incredible light lines. thx for sharing it!

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport by member September11
All about business concept. National Airport was built by the federal government from 1940 to 1941 by John McShain on mudflats alongside the Potomac River at Gravelly Point, immediately south of Washington, D.C, and roughly 4 miles from the Capitol.
