Hello IFC! Recently, I got to revisit MIA for some spotting. I was there for about 45 minutes during midday. I’ve probably said this before and I’ll say it again, MIA is probably one of the best airports in the US for spotting, except for maybe LAX and JFK. The spots are good, the variety is incredible (unfortunately midday there’s pretty much just AA and a few cargo airlines which I missed because they went south side), the lighting is good all day, the only problem is heat haze. I’m glad it was sunny that day, finally got to test out my lens in something that wasn’t clouds, snow, fog, or rain.

These last 2 are not from MIA, but they’re still aircraft. These were taken from my cruise balcony before leaving port and after arriving back at port, respectively.

This one’s not high quality because it’s a huge crop as I’m shooting from 4-5 miles away with a 300mm, but I liked the lighting and background.
