Questionable Lighting and Bad Quality - Spotting at LFPL

Hello, IFC
A few hours ago, I posted a topic about a flight I went on yesterday.

After landing at LFPL, I took the opportunity to do a bit of spotting and to go say hi and chat with ATC because my favorite controller was there.

Here are some pictures from that afternoon/evening.

Please have mercy, these were taken on a rainy day with an 8-year-old portable camera that cost $200 at the time…

One very nice looking King Air

F-GIRV, the PA28 that flew me 300km.

F-GDDN, a Cessna R172F taxiing through a puddle (in front of the nose gear)

F-BTUZ, another Cessna, F172, doing a touch and go after a simulated engine failure

F-GCHO, yet another Cessna, doing a full stop.

A beautiful Pipistrel Velis Electro taxiing nowhere near the centerline

“November 4 three times, Hotel twice” (As the controller said it) flying to the fuel pumps

Aaaand takeoff! (With quite a considerable amount of rain)

F-GESN, a beautiful Piper, taxiing in the rain :(

Thanks a lot for having a look!
Have a great week!


Well done! The photos look so cool!

I think their pretty good for not having any light. All that green adds a lot of contrast. Nice panning too.

Thank you!


Merci beaucoup! My goal is to fix the contrast issues… the pictures look like they have too much AND not enough contrast at the same time…

Thanks :D


Magnifique les photos, c’est où LFPN ? Que j’y aille en avion un jour


I know the feeling, critiquing ones own photos and trying to decifier what is or was needed for a better image is an endless task.

LFPN, c’est au sud-ouest de Paris (le village de Toussus).
Ces photos viennent de LFPL, c’est Lognes (une ville a 10km a l’est de Paris).

Yeah, it’s quite difficult haha


Great shots!

Great shots! Even despite the weather, although it does add a certain charm.
