Heavies Making Contrails and More! Spotting 6/13/21


This is a different spotting topic. Rather than the usual close up shots, i decided to spice it up a bit.

These pictures are some contrail shots of planes passing overhead. When you usually see white lines across the sky, this is what you see up close.

These are not for the quality, but rather for the concept and the fun new perspective!

An Air France 777 JFK-CDG

A very rare sight, a Fokker flying from Cherbourg to Caen!

Aeromexico Quetzacoatl 787 MEX-CDG

Cargolux Italia 747-400 LUX-LAX

Air France 777 CDG-ORD with a swapped engine cowling
A spider was crawling up my arm on this one so shooting a moving subject at 1400mm with a spider on your arm and no tripod was not an easy task ':)

Swiss A340-300 EWR-ZRH

Air France A350 MIA-CDG

Italian Air Force A319 XXX-XXX

Again, these were not for the quality but rather to try a new concept.

Should I try more contrail shots or is that enough grain for a lifetime?

  • Do more
  • Too much g r a i n

You can’t in the love of photography post images like these and not show your setup.


My setup is a Canon SX60 HS. I use the lens up to 1500mm equiv and the tripod is me crouching in the grass like a snail


Beautiful shots!
