I also like photographing aircrafts of all shapes and sizes..
This time I visited London Heathrow airport just outside Terminal 5 in the UK. When aeroplanes are landing on runway 09L you can view the approaching aircraft on the road embankment outside T5 which gives you a great view. Also, you can get directly under the flight path for some great wide angle shots.
After capturing some early morning shots in great light, I moved on to taking some black and white photographs as the sky had sadly started to clear, and the light had become harsh. As you can see from below, choosing the correct aircraft colours in the livery does add to the photos.
The next time the light becomes harsh and you have no dramatic clouds in the sky, perhaps try some black and white photography. In a strange way it adds depth back to the flat harsh light.
Hope you enjoy my examples..
