Very impressive photo! Only one thing puzzles me, with the engines at full thrust it's obviously a take-off, so why does it look as if the wheels were smoking?

Amazing capture. Its actually landing and not taking off. The nose angle would have been higher for take off and flaps wouldn't have been at that stage. During take off at this nose angle the main wheels should still have been firm on the ground rather than partially lifted and note the smoke from the tires too.
