That shot reminds me of the time I was stationed at Keesler A.F.B. Ms. and would watch C-130's take off and land in wet weather. I would see those vortices as well. Cool picture!

That is just simply amazing.  So un-natural it almost could be photoshopped.  Rare to see an aerial image convey so much emotion but that top one just says a lot.  Wonderful capture!
