Christmas Eve flight from Edinburgh Airport

Qatar Edinburgh - Scottish aviation photographer

International flight departs Scotland on route to Qatar, the Edinburgh Airport Tower sees off the Doha bound A359.

Not as straightforward as it seems, however, I love when a loose plan comes together, for optimum results the super-telephoto had to come out the bag on this occasion. Working on a plan, I made a guesstimate of the aircraft’s trajectory, the flight path was a given, just a matter of considering the aircraft weight, take-off run and the likes. Having watched many of these movements it was nice having it all come together.

The Calibrated Eye | A photography blog by John Gilchrist 

Photography genres that are general in nature, images and inspiration for anyone interested in exploring a photographers’ blogging space. 

This is the spot on the website where you can check out some of my random blogging topics and view all the things that I enjoy taking pictures of when I am not photographing weddings and the like. An informal weblog, it's not an educational blog, so don't expect too much in the way of expert photography tips and techniques or qualified reviews on cameras, lenses and the latest photography gear, it's more of an outlet to channel some latest activity or reflect on and recycle past images. 

I spy with my trained eye...
