Default Finally...

I'm excited! I live by a small rural airport and see lots of interesting planes. I've never been any good at panning and getting a plane in flight pic I was happy with. Tonight, I managed this shot. Wish the shutter speed would have been faster but I had seconds to get the camera out and take one photo before he was gone.

Anybody know what kind of plane?? Maybe a Lockheed something or another?

I don't know what kind of craft it is, but it's beautiful!

Hi Saly,

Yes, it was a beautiful sight from the ground. Would also have loved to have been onboard to see the fall colors and the setting sun.

Nice shot Laurie! Your shutter speed was good for the propeller, much over 1/400 would have frozen it. You did good...

Hi Hawgwild,

You know at first I wished I'd frozen the propeller, but now looking at it, the blur gives it a feeling of movement and I like that better.

Looks like a Howard DGA-15P

Hawgwild - It took me awhile. I see you are in Pensacola. When I was a kid we lived on Perdido Bay and the Navy trainers flew right over our house. They would wave at my Mom when she hung up clothes to dry.
