Nice, love the tanker shots. (Not to be picky, but the -135 and -17 look like they need a bit more contrast to me. Another clear day in CA, but just a touch of haze.)


All Canon 5D MKIII, 7D MKII, 24-70mm f/2.8L, 70-200mm f/2.8 ISL, 100-400mm MKII, EF 2X MKIII, EF 1.4 MKII

Thanks guys. Yeah... I was debating on how much to boost on the contrast. I was torn between having some detail of the side of the plane, or just getting that ooomph from the contrast boost.

nice pictures!

i never understood using a DC-10 as a water tanker though. the swept wing meant it had faster approach speeds and thus would pass over fire hot spots a lot quicker than turboprop planes, reducing the effectiveness of the water drop. if any, a 747 or airbus would be a much better alternative.

Yeah... not sure why. That said.. that DC-10 was taking its jolly time flying overhead though. So the pilot(s) were able to slow that beast down rather nicely to make the drop.

that's what always baffled me. commercial pilots complained about its high approach speeds compared to other aircraft. the angle of its wings doesnt produce enough lift hence the need to maintain higher speeds if i remember correctly.

nevertheless, I enjoy your pictures! keep 'em coming! :D

The tanker shots are great.
