I’m quite proud of this one…

Taken at Van Nuys Airport just before sundown on December 5. I went with the specific intent of practicing my panning skills while experimenting a little bit with shutter speeds to try and get my images to turn out sharper. This image turned out just perfectly!

If you’re a wide-screen monitor user, I’ve made this into a desktop-sized 1920×1200 image for you to use as a background, should you be interested.

Nikon D200 with the AF-S VR 70-200 f/2.8 lens. All mounted atop a monopod as I stood in the back of my pickup truck. 1/800th at f/2.8.

    Very cool photo! It’d be neat to match up the shutter speed to the RPM setting of the engines. I’m randomly assuming these are around 1200rpm or so, given the blur at 1/800.

    Just set it as my desktop picture!

    Ditto here… resized it and cropped slightly for 1024×768 and it’s lookin sharp on the ol’ desktop. It’s especially nice since this is what I’m flying right now.
