Normally, I'm not a fan of pics in which a fence in the foreground gets right in front of a portion of an aircraft. "Seth" rotated a bit later than I had anticipated, so it was still quite low as it came past my position. I was going to dump the set of shots, but then I gave them a "second look" and I like the triple levels of "depth": the fuzzy fence in the foreground, then the sharp focus on the FDX tri, and then the blurry background. And the barbed wire doesn't really interfere with the view of "Seth" on the climb. Plus, I like the "Warning" sign in the shot too.
I get tired of the "SOS" (same old shots) so for me, this is a bit of a different style click.

Glad you decided to post it- 600,000 pounds of howling beast airborne inside a fence. Totally cool! Think Orville and Wilbur would have been impressed...

Thanks very much, Dave. In this particular snap, the fence does add a bit of visual perspective ... as you indicated, it sure does look like an awful huge beast inside a rather puny fence. lol
And you have expressed a thought I've had often, especially when I spent a couple days in Dayton, Ohio, just over a year ago. I can't begin to imagine how mind-boogled the Wright Bros would be to see aircraft of this size going airborne and then disappearing into the clouds. But I'll bet they would turn to each other and do fist pumps as they yelled out, "Yes!" lol

Outstanding shot, Gary!
