Say Goodbye To Gravity

There is nothing like outdoor photography to test your own boundaries. Indoors, you can control all the parameters. Outdoors, you are forced to use your own initiative to make the best of the existing weather conditions. When I saw this Royal Australian Air Force F/A-18A Hornet, I took a series of shots from the aircraft's nose, using a variety of unusual angles. I was walking away from the aircraft when I stopped on the tarmac, turned around to admire its clean lines - and saw another opportunity to frame the open cockpit canopy against a moody sky. Just goes to prove - even when you think you've got the best shots, there's still one you haven't captured.
