About the work
A Boeing 747-8 is cleared for takeoff in the cold Alaskan winter wonderland.
As the engines spool up, a fine mist of snow is kicked up and forms a local blizzard behind the accelerating aeroplane.
I took this shot somewhere on a cold February afternoon and nearly froze my feet off, standing on a little hill just north of the airport. Temperatures of -20'C / -4'F and a chilling wind, my European winter jacket was simply not up to the job of keeping me warm.
But it was all worth it for this single shot. The dynamics of a flying machine, the bitter cold of winter and the stunning scenery of Alaska. Can't wait to go back.
