Landing at Sunset ...

Oratoire St-Joseph, Montréal, Qc, Canada

This one nedded a little more observation and preparation. This was shot from the view at l'Oratoire St-Joseph in Montreal looking into the north part of the city. Was close to sunset time and planes were coming in to the airport in Dorval (Pierre-Elliot Trudeau airport) located on the far west end of the island. The planes were pretty much on the final approach stage and kept passing at the same level more or less. I had to be quick on the shutter to get the plane at the right place and moment. Out of the 3 attempts I had, this one is my favorite. It was shot handheld. That lens used is known for it's poor ability to catch a picture with the sun facing up. I guess I was lucky :-)
