2021 In Review - My Best Pictures Of This Hectic Year!

Hello, IFC!

This year felt like the ending credits of 2020. Remember when we were all counting the days until the end of 2020? Silly us…
Let’s do it again!
30 days until the end of this horrible year!

As bad as this year was, it had quite some milestones for me! I…

Left the USA and moved to France
Saw my first airshow
That’s about it frankly lol

As the tradition goes, it’s December 1, so it’s time to see what my overall best pictures are from this year!

These are not based on like count but on personal preference as well as technical superiority

This Air France A320 is special but not because of the plane… look at the grass!

image
This was not my only my first time spotting a Corsair NEO, but also my first time spotting in France!

image
This Rafale Tactical Display team showing off some nice aerobatics!

image
This shot is grainy, yes, but was very hard to get! It was shot at 1300mm in front of the sun with specific humidity conditions… so… rainbow!

image
A 737-900 blasting through the cold morning mist!

image
This shot being from my last US spotting trip before moving, I think it represents Seattle quite well! Amazon, Boeing and Mt. Rainier!

My first time spotting an inaugural flight, and with some nice condensation to go with it!


I’m sure you have never seen KRNT from this angle before ;) - IFC Exclusive!


The French Transall on it’s last public demonstration

And the takeoff but it's in a summary to lower my chances of getting flagged for having 11 pics

The best picture of the year!

For life? I feel much more “at home”.

For spotting? Its much harder cuz there aren’t many designated “spots” you have to crawl through rabbit holes and stuff but the variety is amazing!
