Yes, I’ll admit it: when it comes to airliners I’m a bit of nerd. Even though I’m often on an airplane more than twice a month I still get overly fascinated by these flying pieces of mechanical wonder.
Yesterday, after a nice portrait shoot with a VP of DSM in the Amsterdam Hotel American, I figured I’d make the most of the fantastic weather and hang around Schiphol Airport for a little while to photograph airplanes. A great excuse to keep my tan intact.
How Dutch can it get? Green grass, yellow flowers, murky brown water and a blue bird about to leave it’s nest!
Come to it, I’m now trying to keep up a gallery with my finer airline shots. Quite a few are viewable on Airliners.net (made the frontpage twice now!). Enjoy!
What an amazing sight: sea, sun, sand and a couple of tons of shining metal coming in low on St.Maartens Princess Juliana Airport.
What a treat! On approach to Queenstown (ZQN) from Auckland (AKL) and flying low over the same snowboarding area, Cardrona, where I would be photographing New Zealand’s first offical WorldCup Snowboarding contest a week later. Yes, that road to the mountaintop is as scary as it looks.
