Default O'Hare spotting 1.16.11: Tower lights, Camera, action!

It wasn’t the most ideal weather to shoot on Sunday but winter lighting prevailed in most cases here’s what a few hours out in the cold produced.

Camera: Nikon D90
Lenses: 80-400mm VR
70-300mm VR
50mm f/1.4
Weather: 15 degrees with flurries

Nice work again! Beautifully bright and good contrast even against such dull weather.

Great pics, Koz! The color always seems to really "pop" in your pictures. Love it!

That AA Chicago-Brussels, Brussels-Chicago, sure brings back memories of my first trans-atlantic flight. Loving that Cargolux as well. Thanks for sharing.

Koz, I love the details your new lens is providing. I am about to buy a canon 100-400 again. I miss my old one for aviation shooting.

I didn't see it over at Signature. I heard them come in Friday night about 7:30. Saw somebody pointed a laser at them on final into SEA-TAC on Sunday night.
