|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I hate flying. Well actually that's not completely true. I love take off, the acceleration, the feeling in the pit of your stomach as a jet leaves mother Earth and you are forced back into your seat as the surge of power from the engines throws you forwards and up towards the heavens. Equally I love landing, especially (strangely enough) if it's windy and the pilot is fighting to keep the plane level and descending gradually. I love the thud that travels from the tyres through the undercarriage and airframe and your seat right into the small of your back as a lot of tonnes of man made bird smacks down onto the runway.|
But I hate the bit in between. How boring can it be ? Stuck like air freight with nowhere to walk but the toilet. So I usually sit with my camera and snap away. And when I get home and download the SD card I realise everything I took was rubbish, or could have been done better.
This is the best of a bad bunch taken early evening last weekend, over the English Channel approaching the south coast of England. Outbound from Charles De Gaulle in Paris and due at London Heathrow Terminal 5 very soon after this picture was taken.
Thanks for listening !
