Thank you for viewing my pictures. Please let me know how they turned out. This was the first time using my new camera.


I love your lufthansa A319 and Austrian A320 shots! The lighting is perfect… but for me the perfect one is the swiss boeing 777… that wing flex is amazing!


The wingflex and the wet runway makes the picture look 1000 times better. Thanks for the feedback!

What is your gear? I think its amazing since its your first time using a new camera

CS100 for the win!!! Awesome pictures overall! Nice job, keep it up!

When were those rules enforced?

Just checked it out. Thanks for warning me. I’ll have some of them taken down ASAP

Great photos, I always love seeing photos from Zurich with the mountains in the back :)

Were any of these photos taken from the viewing terraces?

No, none of these were taken from any of the terraces.
At the start of runway 14 there are some hills and a siding with some restaurants. All of them were taken there.

Thanks for the kind words. Appreciate it!
