An FA/18 Super Hornet displaying a vapor cone during a sonic boom at the Jones Beach Airshow in Long Island, New York. Taken in continuous shooting mode. I was following it with my finger depressing the button... snap, snap, snap, then boom!! This was the loudest thing I've ever heard.

This happened October 26th, 2008 on a cloudy afternoon. I'm an aviation enthusiast and I was waiting for Iberia's Airbus A340 to arrive as I do many other days past 3pm but this particular afternoon, even if the sun was shinning, there was a big cloud blocking the way so I stayed alert for a cloud-breaking moment but never for one of this magnitude. It was breathtaking.
This photograph was taken with a Canon EOS 40D + EF 100-400mm L lens. I used Apple Aperture for editing and Adobe Photoshop CS3 for resizing.
Back in July 2008 I was taking a break from work and went out on the roof of my office building with my camera. Little did I know there would be a huge storm cloud looking East which was almost in the path of airplanes attempting to land.

This High Dynamic Range (HDR) photo was taken in the early morning hours at Calgary International Airport (YYC). Our flight was going to Toronto. While waiting for the crew to get ready, the sky was giving us a nice show, which reflected in the aircraft's body.
