Last week I broke custom and chose a picture of a Spitfire on the ground. I will return to aerial shots, but not until next week. We will remain on the ground for another week with this week’s selection. It has been three months since I last selected the F-22 for this series, and that has taken discipline as this powerful plane lends itself to a lot of wonderful pictures that can be found on Flickr. At some point I will highlight some of those shots, but this week I am drawn to an image that approaches a Raptor as still life.
As usual, I want to make sure to extend my thanks to the photographer, Scott Lowe, and encourage you to follow the links and enjoy his other work, which includes several other pictures taken in the same series.
If you like this, I encourage you to check out this summary of all of the aviation photography I have featured here.
