There's nothing like a dramatic sky. Thank you, Mother Nature!
My second shot of an airplane was a last second grab. I was actually shooting windmills, which actually look a lot like airplanes (see Power Up), when I suddenly heard an aircraft engine. It was a way's off but I turned and realized this was as close as I would get. I rotated the lens to the max (105mm), composed it and clicked all in one move, before it got to far away. I had know idea I managed to get a clear and detailed photograph. I really love this shiny metal bird frozen in the vast deep blue sky.
I shot this yesterday on my exit from Palm Desert to keep your power level up. How's your year going? There are only 363 days left.
I am here...
Currently, I am sitting inside a car in the parking lot of a Starbucks because the place I am staying doesn't have internet (this should be interesting). This photograph may or may not have been taken this afternoon by my iPhone through a dirty window whilst I was driving 75mph. (If I actually did do that consider this a warning to not try this at home)
If I did actually take the picture as described I can tell you that I did not do anything to the original picture. No cropping, no color adjustments, no sharpening, no filters. Nada. Just a quick click. Sometimes I get lucky.
Anyway, I'm tired and would like to get out of this empty parking lot before I get mugged or picked up by the cops. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas day and overate as much as I did. Six days (and blog posts) left in 2016. How did 2015 go by so fast?
