Nice timing & photo.

James, wish I could take credit but it was total luck. I only photographed it because it is showing on ADSBX and FR24 as a KC-135. I went out to photograph it and prove it was a KC-130J instead.

Chris, luck tends to favor the prepared. What was the focal length used, in 35mm terms?
Charles Blackwell

Paul Wisgerhof

...wow!...I would like to say that I had that kind of 'luck' when I shot snaps (lol)...Chris, this photo is pure awesomeness...of course, having one of the greatest aircraft as the centerpiece doesn't hurt....a major Kudos to you!
Robin Rebhan
Nice! Timing is everything!
Pablo Rogina
It looks like the C130 has a "power shield"
Joseph Immermann
Amazing how often luck (timing) come into play in photography. That said, you still deserve a great deal of credit for taking the initiative to be in a position to get a good shot, and of course, for doing such a good job with the photo shot itself. What a beautiful photo!
Arnold Hauswald

Think my favorite pic this week.

You could not have improved upon this pic.

10 stars and should be in a magazine.
Dennis Bishop
Where Luck and Preparation coincide. Great shot.

Truly an exceptional image.
Ken Fedder
What a heavenly picture, Chris. God bless America.

For those asking, this was shot with a Nikon D500 and a Sigma 150-600mm Sport lens, so it was at a 900mm zoom with the DX crop. I cropped the shot slightly to make it 16x9 for my desktop wallpaper, so it is probably a 1000mm zoom in actuality.
Paul Benfante
Too Cool. Awesome Photo.
James Wisely
Chris, Thank you for taking the time to post the photo information. As an amateur
photographer it's always interesting to see how a photo was shot.
At 900mm equivalent and 14,000 ft. you must have a steady hand, even with OS/IS ! Great work, keep it up.
Jorgiane Kaminski
Surreal.... Fantastic image..
Tony Stone
That’s a great photo
