Hello IFC! This isn’t a real spotting topic per se but I wanted to share these pictures I took en route to Sydney last December. We took a weird routing through Munich and Singapore, which meant I got to try out three different airlines and three different aircraft.
Shot on D7500 + Tamron 45mm f/1.8
I don’t have any pictures from my first flight since I didn’t get a window. AC 77W was nice but nothing special.
Munich Airport has installed double glass but that’s not going to stop me.
Terminal 2 (I think) offers some pretty nice photo opportunities despite the double glass.
Really love the low light capabilities of my 45, even though it’s autofocus at night is pretty mediocre (and nowhere near my 100-400 but I can’t use that at night).
Onboard my bird, D-AIXC. I think this is part of Munich but I’m not exactly sure. The plane hit some turbulence right as I released the shutter so this one-second exposure gave some cool effects (and yes, it’s blurry and I can see that but I don’t care). The Lufthansa A350 is my favorite aircraft I’ve flown to date.
Next morning in Singapore. “Holiyear” was my ride to Sydney. I’ve heard a lot of complaints about Scoot but I didn’t mind them. Nothing inherently wrong with them, and it’s hard to complain when you just paid barely over $150 for a 7 hour flight during peak season.
Some interesting looking clouds as we approach cruising altitude.
Thanks for viewing this! Sydney and Melbourne topics coming soon.
