For this morning departure shot of "Ann" (FDX's N308FE) from Reno Tahoe International, I decided to attempt to get a closeup snap ... but backlit by the very bright sky in the east caused by the sun just coming up over the Virginia Range Mountains. I repositioned myself on to Bravo taxiway, which is located parallel to runway 16R-34L and on the west side, and I made an educated guess as to what camera settings I would need in order to get a sharp and viewable click as the big DC-10 came past me with the sunlight shining toward my lens. As is obvious by the shadows seen here, the "shaded" side of the FDX freighter was facing me so my #1 goal was to capture a clean and clear click as it went by. I actually did not expect it to be rotating; I thought it would still have all four on the ground when it went past. Because it was nose-high, the next snap in this series caught it with the sun directly on the other side so the lens picked up several sunlight-caused circular reflections and although the photo shows clear and crisp detail of the shady side, the reflections make that photo unpresentable.
