Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Nellis, golden hour januari 2012

Post by Hans Antonissen »

One of the reasons i like to go to Nellis is because they, like most other US bases, fly from sunrise to sunset. Nellis offers almost perfect conditions for sunset shooting. With aircraft in my favourite position (banking) and the sun setting makes the colors really nice and soft on the planes.
Here are some from late januari/early februari.
Hope you enjoy them.

Grtz,

Hans

These are beautiful shots. It really brings out all the details - especially on the Raptor.
Did you "capture" any of the newly painted F16 aggressor (86-0269)?

The 269 did not fly that week, i only have a shot of it being towed, by the looks of it, it will be in maintenance for some time to come.
