Emirates Airlines Boeing 777-300ER

@ San Francisco International Airport, CA

March 2014

More handheld lens practice today with the 80-400mm lens.  The wind shifted with recent storm activity and SFO reversed their air traffic patterns, which meant shooting a clean aircraft accelerating up and to my right.  Emirates Airlines operates 90 of these aircraft.  Maybe it was the late afternoon light, but the white paint looks dingier that others I have seen.  Nikon D7000 with 80-400 mm lens (with 1.4x teleconverter).  Shooting handheld at 550mm AND cropping to get a usable image is a good test of the optics and VR system.
