    ALB 2/26 - Spotting in the snow

    ALB was running arrivals to the East for much of the morning. Landing rwy 10 is very unusual so I thought that I'd head over during lunch and see what I could see. Weather was questionable. Wouldn't you know, they switched to runway 1 and we got a snow squall. Oh well ... On a positive note (for me anyway) we got a couple of diverts from LGA while I was there.

    All shots taken from location C on your ALB spotting map:

    Snow banks in the spotting area were tall enough to see over the fence when stood upon. I did get honked at by traffic passing by though.


    One of the LGA diversions


    Regular ALB Southwest traffic



    Another divert from LGA


    Sharpening does not seem helpful on those snow shots.

    I hope that you enjoy them,
    Dan

    Thanks for the nice replies! I would not normally have gone out in the snow. It was a bit of a surprise squall. But as long as I was there - what the heck. Gotta love digital.

    I tried to keep shutter speeds up to try and freeze the flakes. Still looks mostly like noise anyway. I didn't think that Citrus came out too bad - from a snow effect point of view.

    No point in submitting any of these to the usual sites - I just thought some might enjoy them here. I always enjoy everyone else's pictures here.

    The DC-9 shot is spectacular! Nothing beats getting great results in less-than-perfect conditions....

    Love the NWA DC-9. Wonder why they diverted.

    Apparently there was weather in NY that day (last Friday). Besides the LGA diverts that I saw, there were two jetblue red eye diversions first thing in the morning. I think that I remember that you guys were getting snow that morning.
