The Rolls Royce Trent XWB engine of a Qatar Airways Airbus A350. This was the first arrival of the service to Adelaide Airport, a rainy day, you can make out the raindrops on top of the engine cowling. I love the play of the curves between the blades and the wing tip. I got a chance to go on board the aircraft - it's beautiful. Shot on a Nikon D800 and processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex.

An aerial charter for Adelaide Airport at dusk to capture long shadows and depth around the airport precinct - I love the way the baggage train mimics the strong paint curves leading from the front of the two Qantas aircraft. This one really shows off the power combination of the Nikon D800 and 70-200mm VR2 lens that I usually use for aerial work, you can make out the rivets in the wings when you zoom right in! Processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

One of my favourite engines, the GE Aviation GEnx. This is one of four that powers a Cathay Pacific Boeing 747-800F freighter. I love the technical drawing feel that the black and white treatment gave the image. Shot on a Nikon D800 and processed in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex.

The long term car park at Adelaide Airport with a BAE146 aircraft. When flying at 500ft in a helicopter everything happens very fast below, you really trust your instincts for framing and subconsciously 'seeing' - this was captured during a charter to photograph the new solar installation on the roof of the Adelaide Airport carpark as well as various sites around the airport precinct for both Solgen and the airport . I really like the strong opposing shadows from the floodlights (and the cars that look like Matchbox toys!). Shot on a Nikon D800 and processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.
