Lightly loaded FedEx MD-11F is now rocketing out from RWY32 at Anchorage - because of the Saturday maybe? As the sun was suddenly jumping into the frame, it gave me an interesting yellowish hue. The thermometer in the vehicle showed that it was -9F (-22.8C) which made me pretty cold; but, as you might know, I like winter so that I was really excited what I am doing here! The horizontal stabilizer and tail section were shadowed onto the puff of clouds created by break dusts. Pretty cool effect I would say.

Beautiful picture, I love how that there are no distinguishing marks or graphics on the plane. The shadowing is awesome!

So rare to see such a great angle of such a great airplane like the MD-11 is. I love the composition, the angle, the yellowish hue above the frosty Anchorage. Great!
