Now, that's something you do not see every day Great light for the shot too.

Last time I was up to NJ to visit my daughter, we drove to the coast, passing by the base at Lakehurst and you could see the huge wooden hanger where the Hindenburg would be stored while there, supposedly the largest wooden hanger in the world, and I believe that after seeing it.

There's a museum dedicated to the Hindenburg near that hanger, but we discovered in order to get on that base and get to the museum, you have to submit to a background check and do it at least 30 days before you want to visit I may just do that now since I plan to be back there in mid-June when Kelsey returns from the Middle East.

Thanks for looking and for your comments, Greg.

I can only imagine how big the hanger for the Hindenburg must be!

This particular photo was an early morning shot with the sun behind me, so the overall scene has a nice golden glow. I was on my way to the Daytona 500 and I always come in the back way to avoid some of the traffic. That route takes me by this airport which is south of Daytona Beach.
