[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This POV is from the beach we spent the week at! The 1st day they arrivals and departures would fascinate me with many shots taken. I like this one due to the reeds on the bottom and right.. plus this was the one time I caught the double Decker! I was amazed how it took off away from the Sea and towards the Mountains.. Did not seem to be enough room again IMHO! :))

In WS I will add another shot of this BIG BOY gaining speed to during take off..

I had to crop a little off the top... then clone out a pesky reed that looked like it was spearing the plane... (never a good thing IMHO:)) I also had to clone out a spot from that was on the lens...

Enjoy your Monday.. Our kids have the day off today ... its Memorial day here in the States..

747-400 - beautiful aeroplane. This is a nice shot Tricia, nicely framed with the palms.

The framing elements of the palms the gentle turn of the beautiful airplane well done

Hi Tricia:

Hi Tricia, very nice composition. nice palms on the right side. great sharpness.



Hope you had a GRAND Memorial Day!! We did...got a little sun! Temps were hot but the water was a cool 76 degrees! This is a super shot, reminds me of when I was a kid!

Then this would be the Boeing 747-400, I have been flying in one of these several times, and those wings bend down when taking of - an awsome sight. We have been landing in Barbados and there the runway ends at a sheer cliff and in the sea. The sound of the brakes and the force was absolutely max capacity and the aircraft was making strange noises, but still very exciting all of it - as I'm sure you also feel when looking at these birds.

Lovely catch in tropical surrounding with the palmtrees moving in the always present trade-winds.


Hi Tricia,
Wonderful sharp details to the blue jet as it ascends to the tropical sky. The colors are right on and the palm branches add that nice tropical touch.
Regards, Tom

Hello Tricia.
Almost forgot that Holland has some tropical regions, haha
Very good capture of this aeroplane.
The palmtrees makes it really 'tropical'.
Best Regards from Jan
