Mountains of Kyushu from my flight into Oita

Last week I went down to Kunisaki, flying into the nearby airport of Oita.

I'd taken a few shots on the flight down from Tokyo with the Hasselblad H4D-40 and 80mm lens. It was more manageable to hold up to the plane window than the 300mm I also had in the bag.

But just past Hiroshima, the view and the light on the distant mountains became amazing so I got the 300mm out.

It's always a challenge to get sharp shots through the aircraft window, as there are two layers: one of plastic and one of glass. Condensation, scratches, ice... all create challenges. And shooting through the centre of the window is always preferred, as if you look down through the edges you get some horrible distortion and more effects of the double window and air-gap.

Still, this effort wasnt bad. It's not super, super sharp at 100% but it's good enough at web resolution.

Apart from the re-sizing and adding my watermark, this is straight from the camera.
