yo... - for me too ;-) - thanks Denis! |
And... another photo of the year! :D |
Dear Bay on Jan & swtk - A pleasure for me, that you like my photo - and many more obviously ;-) ... Many thanks!
@ swtk - to your question: What I learned from locals is, that the airport of Gibraltar is still a military airfield - so owned and operated by the British Airforce. But it is used as a civil airport. May the are no fighters based at Gibraltar at present times... they would be flight in within less then an hour from the UK... if needed... Kind regards - Marc
When we were "waiting for orders" off Europa point in the 1980ties we saw a lot of fighter jets using that runway.
Was it always (is it still) a combined airfield used for both military and commercial flights??
Very nice pic & difficult to catch. Thanks for sharing! |
Thanks Jadran, Jens, Emmanuel for your words - and the Link to my "rail and sail" photo ;-)
@ Jadran to your question about the "Shooting background": Using "multiple shots" mode?
Yes and No – I followed the plane with the camera, saw the setting and have taken the picture! But, if I use the teleobjectiv (here in a distace of about 1.7nm) for moving objects or ships in a rougher sea), I often use a mode of multiple shot of only two or three pictures in a row. I normaly do that in order not to blur the photo. When I'm lucky, one of the shots is sharp…! That's the way to meet my quality standards ;-) - Kind regards to Croatia - Marc
Thanks for sharing Marc, this photo is the perfect example of being at the right place at the right time with the right equipment and being handled by the right man.
Thanks and regards
Hi Marc,, one question... for the *perfect* alignment at that particular angle (at the left side of the image) of the 2 ships + plane,, did you use the "multiple shots" mode on your camera (e.g. 10 shots in a sequence) or, did you take several separate shots by you one after another, or, did you take only 1 (one) shot in this occasion !!!?
In any case,, you managed to reach the most perfect alignment possible ... bravo & BIG congratulations for this marvelous picture!
Best regards from Croatia to you and Switzerland,
Thanks Clyde, csaba and Volker for your compliments - I really was lucky... Well I had the flight plan, but that the approach route would match so nice with the anchoring ships was a fortune ;-) - Kinfd regards Marc |
