Spotting IAH 1-25-2019 (Night Spotting!)

Introduction

As some of you know, I got a new Canon 70-200 f/4L IS II USM lens for my Canon 80D. I had tried it out in daylight previously, but not at night.

I spotted from about 5:45pm to 9pm on January 25. I spotted from the C garage.
Here are the 8 best pictures from the trip. You can see all these on my Flickr page in high quality.


Conclusion

Thanks for looking through my pictures! I hope you liked them. Please leave feedback on them; I love reading everyone’s comments.

Wow! Great photos! I absolutely love the beacons and lights standing out at night! My favorites are the Air New Zealand 777 and the Singapore A350!

Keep it up!

I really like the night traffic lights and everything, I really hope that the infinite flight improves the night flight for us, I would like to fly and see the city lights and taxi with taxi way lights and most importantly the tone of lightness because it gets very dark at night

nice photo, I really liked it

Are these night shots possible with an F/4.5-6.3? or do you need a fixed low aperture

Oh yeah definitely possible. Most of these were between f/7.1 and f/13. The ones with the defined star bursts of the aircraft lights are up in the f/20 to f/32 range.

Practice practice practice! Also some location location location, but mostly practice.
