Back in Sint Maarten.. this is my entry for Helen's aka Surfers Fun Friday theme.. Yes I know it is still Thursday but I want to share early this week ;)

For the last 3 years our last day hours before we fly home we go to the Sunset Beach Bar and watch some flights land and a few take off...

The surf board has the flights due to land on the chalkboard part. I was going to crop out the DANGER sign but kept it due to one of my last posts... AND we can see many Photographers that did not read the sign here!

Hi Tricia,
Nice quiet spot on the beach, really getting away from the noise of the city...yeah right.
You did a 'grate' job capturing the airliner, framed nicely by the surfboard.
Something really different for the theme, well done.

WOW!! My ears hurt already!! Really nice work here Tricia!! I would expect lots of photographers there! I've seen many photos of this place..some day I'll meet you there!
Excellent work on the sound theme!
B-) B-)

And that's why the fence is all dented :-).
Excellent capture and entry for the theme.
:) later

Tricia Hi;
A very interesting and wonderful theme presentation. Wonderful POV with great colors and clarity. Congratulations. Very well done.
I hope you have an excellent weekend.

But the temptation is just too great Tricia, to tickle that plain under his belly....

Yes, that sign I recognised, I feel I will recognise a lot if ever we go to Sint Maarten.

Lovely deep colour in the sky and very familiar plane (those AA's are landing constantly in Aruba).
TFS this tropical moment with eardeafening sound!


Hi Tricia,

Funny sign of danger . . and interesting spot for taking shot of the airport and the plane . .
I can't imagine the sound generated by this plane . .
Well composed . .

Powerful! Great PoV and wonderful composition
Fine contribution to the theme -- must be deafening there sometimes

Hello Tricia

A superb shot here, interesting POV thats sharp light and full of colour.

TFS and for joining in the theme

Kind regards Helen

I have read about it, seen it on TV and watched it on Youtube and now it has made it to TL! I am amazed by the short runway. The take-offs are almost as exciting. I think you have captured this very well. From the side is better, it will keep the sand out of your camera! I wonder how high the plane really is in this shot. 40 feet off the ground?
Great blue sky and thanks for the good notes!

Noise would be fine for me Tricia as long as I didn't have my hearing aids in :). Well captured with good colour and fine detail. TFS,

Superb timing and so clear and sharp. Very good captured photo.
It seems like the jet if going towards the surf board.

Thx, Yan :)
