    Just a guy standing on a bridge or in a boat with a camera with a long image-stabilized lens watching airplanes fly by. Nothing more complicated than that

    I do love the shadows cast by the smoke trails in the last photo... now that's a cool photo if I don't say so myself!

    It reminds me of Idaho, where I lived within throwing distance of the military side of the airfield, amid the sunsets supreme.
    Great shot!

    When I was a kid growing up in Southern California, we'd see the exhaust plumes of the rockets the Air Force and NASA launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base. I don't know if the guvmint still does that down there, or if the columns of smoke are still visible from the L.A. basin.

    Wish I had been old enough to think about photographing the views I remember from my childhood.

    That, and the brush fires that came up to our back yards - with helicopters landing in our cul-de-sac and our street flooded with fire trucks.

    Fun times in SoCal.

    I love this shot too.
    But I cropped it for better effect I think.
    Forgive me.

    no





    I had actually thought about that but after printing it out and editing out the sign post I liked it better with the top part left in as I liked seeing both parts of the reflection and the cars in the background don't really stand out as much as I thought. Its the pond outside where I work. I also noticed when looking at the large print I have in my office that the muskrats that I thought had just moved in have been there since winter when this was taken. You can just see their lodge in the middle of the reeds, the little bit of white is the top of their den.

    yeah, well I like anymules, got a problem wit dat?

    (I was labeled "nature boy" in middle school by some of the kids that I didn't get along with, they thought it was insult, what they didn't realize was that I didn't! Ha Ha!)

    its actually pretty kool to have the pond right there at work, we have all kinds of critters living in/around it, I esp. like to watch the crane strut around the pond when he drops by to catch lunch. I keep thinking he should be wearing a long-tailed black coat and top hat because they have such a stately walk. Each time he catches something I want to clap and shout "Good One!" Ha Ha..
