When life gives you a cloudy day... [Spotting at LSGG]

…you’re probably spotting with me.


Maybe that was a bit extreme. Of the roughly 25 day spotting sessions I’ve done in 2023, only 6 were entirely cloudy. But alas this is one of them, so I had to bring the recoveries back out. Also, I think this is the first and only cross-border spotting I’ve ever done. I am standing on a hill in France spotting the planes in Switzerland.

Gear: Sony α7iii + Sony 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS

Kuwait Airways A320-200 [9K-AKF]

This should be their actual livery.

MEA A321 NEO [T7-ME6]

Interesting texture on the mask.

Private Gulfstream G650 [VP-BZF]

Boring paint, interesting scenery.

JetFly Cirrus Vision SF50 G2 [LX-SFA]

This plane is lighter than a G87 M2 Competition. Seriously.

TAP Air Portugal A321 NEO [CS-TXJ]


Smart Jet Hawker Beechcraft 400XP [SP-EAK]

All the registrations you could’ve picked and you do this.

Swiss International Airlines A330-300 [HB-JHL]

Captain is concentrating very hard on making the turn correctly.

Astonjet Cessna 525 Citation M2 [F-HBTV]

Oh no, he’s landing on the A330.

@AndrewWu You were on the common spot 😕. Should have tried to go just to the field at 5min from there:

because on yours you can’t see the touchdown at all…

Is that the farmer field? I think @Kamryn took one or two shots from there

farmer? never been told it was from someone

Spot 14

Ah yeah there

We discussed this but it was rainy and gross so I didn’t really want to walk through the mud

Oh rainy? lol I went there with a tempest especially to try if rainy pics can looks good 🤣, took an umbrella for the camera and I was uhm, out of it

Maybe. It was honestly very low effort spotting because the weather was so bad and we only had like an hour or two.

As a beginner photographer, really you should get stuck into every opportunity!


could have been better if I were a better photographer 🫤

It wasn’t that rainy when I went lol

my bad i will drench myself and my camera next time
