By now you all probably know that the approach into Samedan is an amazing one, but this Gulf just beats what I've seen so far. Thanks to quite some crosswind it seems like he is heading in my direction which results in the ability to get a beautiful head-on shot of this Bizjet. This is a full colour photo and not manipulated at all. The sun was directly in line with the airplane approaching, that's why this fuselage is shadowed too, and thanks to the bright snow from below the full plane is lit perfectly, while the scenery is severely underexposed. Dedicated to f/o James C.

There are certain airplane's that just look good in the pattern. At the top of that list is the Gulf Stream G-V, Beech King Air 200 or 350, Donier Do-328 Turbo prop and a few other that I like. This is one of those great shot where everything just came together at the right time and that's from some one who use to be into photography. Good Job...

The dream of every Biz-Pilot, in a clean and shiny G-V into Samedan. Perfect image

Stunning capture, like all the pieces of a puzzle falling into place by the sounds of things with the X-wind, snow, sun position. Pity all the EXIF data has been stripped, I'm interested to know what settings you had on your camera (exposure time, EV bias, ASA speed etc).
