During last weeks photoshoot near YVR I also took the time to capture a few images of the airport just after sunset, and the results were pleasing. The most difficult aspect of this shot was getting a high enough shutter speed to freeze the aircraft as it moved towards the runway, while not blowing out the rich colours in the sky.

Today's image is of a jet coming in for a landing at YVR (Vancouver Airport, Sea Island) at dusk. Smoke from the many wildfires in British Columbia and Washington State, mixed with light cloud cover provided an excellent background in the fading light of the day. The shots were taken from a small park just south of YVR, across from the BCIT Aerospace campus.
