"I take my hat off to you Tony", a stunning inflight image, which I am extremely envious off. After trying to capture such an image all summer I have finally resided to taking indifferent and much less challenging ones.

Thank you so much for good comments. John, How does EXIF look to you? Average? Would you use different settings? You could teach me a thing or two. TG

Great effort Tony, i always envy the people that get these in flight shots, it must take a lot of time and patience to just sit and wait for the right moment.
