Vapor!!!

  • July 16, 2013

Took this picture of a United Airlines 757 landing at O'Hare Intl. airport after a rain storm. What's good about shooting aircraft after a storm the atmosphere is still full a moisture and when the aircraft are taking off or landing vapor can happen on and around the aircraft. In this case vapor is coming off the edge of the extended flaps. With the dark background and the white of the vapor can make some interesting photography.   Taken with a Canon 7D, Canon 100-400mm lens at 400mm, ISO-100, f/5.6, 1.800 shutter speed.
