My favorite photo from 2011:

“I saw the plane, which didn’t seem out of the ordinary, since planes had been in the sky all night, but for some reason this plane looked like it was heading towards the tribute in lights. It crossed over, and I was able to make about four frames of the plane actually passing through the lights. Of those, only one was in focus. I had actually hoped to expose for the plane, but I didn’t have time to change the settings. But in the end, the plane in white heading into the clouds seemed a fitting tribute on the September 11 ten year anniversary, so I’m glad the image was exposed as is and that I was lucky enough to capture this frame.”
