IN Your Face

This is an impressive aircraft. I took this photo probably 3-4 feet away from the nose of it, with 14mm wide lens it appears farther than that, but you have to come really close to your subject to get it look even this close. This museum is located near the Dulles airport and free to public, except that you have to pay to park, around $15 if I remember it right, and as far as I know there is no public transportation to get you there. They do not allow tripods but I was told that monopods are OK. I was shooting it all handheld.

BTW, if you want to see more photos from this museum then just go to Air Space Museum category under Virginia – right there –> on the right side. I think they all are pretty cool. Also, I think it looks better in high resolution, which is easy to see, all you need is to click on the image!

  1. This is an awesome image, it has great tones,composition, and colors. Thanks for sharing, and thank you for stopping by my blog.
    I also will have to check out some of those Air & Space museums.

  2. Taking this photo from close up truly emphasizes the size of the plane. Simply a great all-around image. This is my first time on your site, after you stopped by my Minnesota Prairie Roots blog. I love what I see. Your photographic talents are impressive. I’ll be back to view more and learn from you.
