Night Landing

"Look Ma, no lights"
Ian landing at Torrance airport on Sunday evening. They had to come down in altitude that evening because the air was over 100 degrees and needed to keep the engine from overheating.

The blur of the airport lights looks very artistic and I like the way the photo is divided by the black ground and then the glowing, orange sky. Great composition.

Hard to imagine that it is almost October and the temperature is still HOT. Come on Autumn we're looking forward to some cooler temps. :)

I hear you are having a hot spell. It's even big news up here in the Pacific Northwest. That's a very interesting shot of the lights and plane. Those little puddle jumpers can get pretty hot inside for sure. - Margy

That seems yet another step up in proficiency for your son. What on earth is left??

What a great shot this is.

Tash said...

Thank you all. The shot is one of those lucky ones - just keep shooting and something comes out good.
Linda - just high school and getting good grades! He needs to do some book learning for his flying too.

Super, super shot. I am a sissy in little planes, but enjoy your photos of them!!

The fact that this is Ian landing is just gravy on top of just a WONDERFUL shot. I love the feeling of speed you've created panning his plane coming in. The colors are delicious, and I can feel that hot night air right through the image. Super!

That is amazing, I had never heard of that kind of engine problems in airplanes. I am glad the plane landed safely!
