Photo Of The Day: Landing At SXM

Photo of the day

This Photo of the Day is titled “Landing at SXM” and comes from Gadling Flickr pool member Gus NYC using an Olympus E-M5 camera. The image was taken at Maho Beach on the Dutch side of the Caribbean island of St Maarten.

This photo is no optical illusion either; aircraft come in low over the beach in order to hit the short runway at Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM). Spotting planes coming in for a landing is so popular that local beach bars and restaurants have airline schedules posted so viewers will know when to be alert for landings.

Upload your best shots to the Gadling Group Pool on Flickr. Several times a week we choose our favorite images from the pool as a Photo of the Day.

Tips for getting featured: include the camera you used along with any other equipment or processing software that might help other photographers know more about your image.
