Parcels at twilight, parcels at dawn

A regular early evening visitor to Warszawa Okęcie is UPS's MD-11 N276UP, caught by the last rays of the setting sun. One of the biggest aircraft to use the airport on a daily basis, so big indeed, that I have to zoom out from 200mm to frame it. Above: Planes look best on approach; flaps out, spoilers extended, undercarriage down. The sunset colours this aircraft beautifully.
Below: The same plane in January 2008, shortly after a dawn take-off from Okęcie. Note the different colour temperature between the two photos, cool dawn, warm sunset.
