With its retro styling, this stunning shot appears to come from another time. Tony Eckersley snapped it at the Top of the Town conference center in Arlington, Va. He arrived there early, camera in hand.
"We all expected the plane to fly in from the south, but it actually came from the north, meaning everyone was facing the wrong way," Eckersley told CNET. "I wasn't fully ready with my camera, so I set up the shot quickly and the auto white balance went a little crazy, making the image too warm -- hence the sepia tone. It was overexposing due to the clouds, so in turn, the plane was underexposed."
Judging by how the shot came out, we'd call that a happy accident.
