This photo in theory was meant to turn out very different. We were desperately trying to get around to the other side of the airfield to get a perfectly lit shot, but Speedbird had different ideas and left too quick for us. What resulted was a pretty atmospheric shot in my opinion.

It looks like an air-to-air shot of a 747 flying level in landing conf, taken from above. Love it.

Terrific photo!! I for one much prefer this than the many same-old same-old perfect lit shots, this is more real, more interesting and eye catching, aviation is a mysterious yet engaging art, and this is a masterpiece.

In my opinion, you did such a great job of this, British Airways should use it as part of their advertising, billboards etc.

You're right, it IS atmospheric. Well done.
