Uploaded: December 06, 2003


this image was captured with my feet firmly planted on the ground. its a composite consisting of two images. first I photographed the swiss airliner taking off from LAX (not recommended) then in photoshop I cut and pasted it into a cloud shot also which was captured from the ground. both images seem to work well with each other,there perspectives match . a foot note here...i wouldnt recommend going to large airports (within the united states)photographing jets in this post 9/11 world.
