That last picture looks very close to one I took a couple of weeks ago. Not quite as good because the sun wasn't above the horizon yet (mine was sunrise), but it still had a plane's tail silhouetted against a yellow sky like that. Mine also has a bit of motion blur - that's what you get trying to take sunrise pictures through the windshield while traveling at around 55 mph and it's a horizontal instead of vertical.

The others are very nice, it's amazing how a small dof and a good eye for detail can make an interesting photo out of something that would otherwise be considered photogenic.

I like the pictures of the Torque Wrench (tool with the dial)..so clear you can even read the calibration re-certification sticker. Also like the picture of the man.

A very nice series, Ira. This kind of photos are your speciality, which you keep proving.
What were you doing there? Is the name really Helacopter (The Hellacopters is the name of a Swedish death metal rock group, not really my kind of music)
