KSJC Sunset Ramp Shots

I went out on the ramp at KSJC to practice some low light work (and to get a study break from finals lol). The sunset was spectacular and painted the sky to make a nice backdrop for my photos. Here are the photos!

Southwest 737-700 arriving from John Wayne KSNA.


Local Cessna 340 watching the sunset.


Alaska 737 on final with downtown San Jose in the background.

Another shot of Alaska landing.

Southwest arriving from Los Angeles KLAX.


The Seneca I detail (looks clean doesn’t it) with some heavies on final.


Long exposure looking over the terminal with a Hawaiian 767 landing.


A Citation spending the night at the jet center.


Lastly the Piaggio.


Everything was photographed on my Canon 7D and 70-200 f/4L.


WOW! 😍 Amazing pictures, @cleipelt!


Nicely love Alaska Airlines

I’m a little bit confused. We’re you in both SNA and SJC spotting? Thanks for the clear up and great photos

No, these were all taken at KSJC. The Southwest was arriving in San Jose from KSNA.
