This guy didn't think he could fly, but standing on a cliff by a waterfall he was proved wrong. Oh well. So it goes.

A classic IR shot from one of my many excursions in and around Copenhagen, Denmark, together with Erik.

The airplanes took off from the nearby Kastrup international Airport in an incessant flow, so in order to get the shot, I just had to move to a clearing in the old oak forest and wait for the next plane to arrive. Got maximum a single chance per occasion as they overshoot us very quickly and I must have tried at least 10-15 times before I got the components framed as I wanted to.

As this picture has been published and printed a number of times, it appears I got the capture just right.

Pretty straightforward.  Hypsipetes amaurotis.  Shot with Nikkor-Q C 200mm/f4.0@f5.6 on Olympus E-M5 Mk II.  Handheld and very heavily cropped (to around 1/13 of the original frame).

This is what I refer when I say "a great photograph". What a beautiful picture; I keep coming back to this one.
Thanks for sharing.

I love the form of the Beechcraft Bonanza V-tail.

The balloon shoot was a quick grab at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.  I saw the bride and groom go inside the balloon, so I stuck my head (and camera) inside for a quick peek.
Great photo! You must have a really good camera.
