Photographer's Note

And now for something completely different... I couldn't resist posting one of my aviation (my other hobby) pictures on TE. I hope you don't mind.

Anyway, it has to do something with the Dutch culture as well. Aircraft spotting is a very popular hobby in the Netherlands. Together with people from the United Kingdom, the Dutch have the largest population of aircraft spotters of the world. The Royal Netherlands Air Force even allocated special spotting areas near its airfields, where you can have a good view on the aircraft operations. This picture was taken on the annual open days of the Dutch air force on the airbase Twenthe near Enschede. It shows a "Tornado" jet aircraft of the German Navy. I tried to catch the speed of the aircraft (probably around 500 km/h) by using a relatively long exposure time. As the pilots decided to fly very low, the trees in the background are helping to show the movement of the jet.

P.S. I believe that I used the following settings when I took this picture: 1/250 sec, F5.6, 300mm.
