Amazing scenery! The artificial pond beside Terminal 3 could be the very place for those who are both fishermen and plane spotters.

The standard of photography on this site is usually high, some pictures are exceptional, like this one. Apart from the beauty of the photograph it highlights the serenity of the countryside and the lone fisherman against the modern looks of mass air travel.

This is true photojournalism at it's best! This photo deserves better than to be shown only to aviation buffs. It could illustrate anything from China - US bonds, to "stressing or taking it easy". Brilliant!

Classic, lovely, against the light calendar photo. You'd never guess that Beijing is currently one of the world's biggest building sites (up to 40,000 labourers and 100 tower cranes) building a Norman Foster Terminal bigger than the whole of Heathrow by the end of 2007 forthe Olympics see 948119 by Zhang Yun Zhe

Good job my friend! Perfect contra between the silent mood and the jet-sound.Althoug the image quality is a little bit worse than the best as with some noise, I believe it should be due to the "too simple" DC, but not the photographer.

Reminds me of Heminway´s "The old man and the sea." Paying atention to his pole instead of watching that 747 takin´ off. T.B.

Very nice shot - of course, five stars! This image perfectly reflects how beautiful Beijing's sunset period is. The composition of this shot is incredible - roaring vs silence and moving vs stationary!

I never post a comment, but this photo is so beautiful! Best picture on this website if you ask me. Because this one has something which other great pictures don't: a contrast in meaning. There is a very nice message hidden in this picture.
