Schiphol 21st - 24th March

Postby Lossie15 on Mon 28 Apr 2014, 12:55 pm

Hello all, Hope you are well.

I've finally got round to pretty much finishing my editing from Schiphol in March. I headed across there with my mates Chris and Ryan in hope to catch the Nuclear Security Summit traffic, but unfortunately it didn't really work out like that. We were warned about the security before we headed out, but we didn't really think it would be as bad as it was. Army convoys on every corner, tanks and police everywhere. Essentially, we made the best of a bad situation. With many mixed messages from the police about photography, we tried our best. We kind of accepted the fact that it was going to very hard to catch the government stuff, but luckily Schiphol has a huge variety of traffic including some really nice cargo movements. So, here's what we were able to catch over the weekend...


Friday Afternoon / Evening from taxiway Quebec.

Fantastic set. Really love the view from that spot. You did well to avoid the bizzies there.

By any chance do you have a wider crop of the same shot on the BA Golden Dove? I was on board and I reckon I was sitting one or two windows back from where you chopped it (assuming you did of course)....!

Stunning set - great angles and fabulous freighters. The Korean 744F departure shot is my favourite.
