This has got to be photoshopped? If it is, a very good job. If it isn't then an incredibly rare unique capture. Either way, good work.

Krass...

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken at the practice day Lethbridge international Airshow July 2010
Time
Mid day
Lighting
Due to the position this is quite backlit but no way to avoid
Equipment
Shot with my backup Canon 30d I was not even near ready as it was a practice fight
Inspiration
Just practicing for the show the next day this shot is proof that you should be ready for anything when you have your Camera with you
Editing
Only processing was to remove spots
In my camera bag
I now carry 2x 7d my trust 50-500 Sigma and a whole list of lenses
Feedback
Be prepared at all times you never know what you will see through the lens. Photography is your lens on the world share enjoy and shoot a lot.
