Hello Led Zep People,

I wanted to start a section that had everyones opinion of the best Led Zeppelin photos ever.

I think this one is, but the group shot at the plane is great. I wish I was there!

Great shot^^ I love the photos from James Fortune, Robert M. Knight, Mark Bowman, Neal Preston, Bob Gruen...just to name a few. I agree with you as this is one of my favorite ones of them not on stage and all four together. I will post the link only:-). Great thread!

Well, I believe by definition the best photograph of Led Zeppelin would have to be one that depicts all four members, onstage or offstage.

I agree, the famous Starship shot(s) would be like the quintessential magnitude of the band. BUT... Led Zeppelin's best picture has got to be playing music - what they best did.

Led Zeppelin's grandiloquence comes through my bet for Best LZ Pic:

I love the shots with the Starship, but you are so right: the best picture must be one where they are playing!!

Really like the one you picked :)

This one by Neal Preston is one of the best ever IMHO:

Couldn't find a higher-res version of this last one, but it's glorious.

David, that's a collage right? Cool one, but I actually like the original picture better!

Looks a bit odd: Jonesy, Page and Plant giving it all and Bonzo just overlooking haha

Steve is right on this, any "greatest" photo must contain prominent and clear views of each individual member. The idea that a photo of just Page and Plant could be the best ever is ridiculous. While a good concept, this type of thread has been attempted before and always quickly dissolves into opinions and hyperbole.
