Jumbo Sunset

By conrad
Im not sure whether this is the right category or not - depends, I suppose, on the question whether or not the plane is the main subject here. Anyway, heres number two from my plane spotting trip two weeks ago, although it is actually one of the last pics I took that day. The sky is hazier than in the other plane sunset picture, which you can easily see by looking at the plane. If you look carefully, you can see the exhaust fumes. Only cleaned up some traces of dust, and cropped a little, but nothing else was done to it. The sky really was this colour.

Lovely shot, Conrad. The only problems is, I know have Elton John's "Daniel" in my head and it refuses to leave! Thanks, mate! Click

No, Andrew, I didn't live in Tredegar, but in Merthyr Tydfil. An acquaintance of mine lived in Tredegar, and I went to see him a lot. So I know the countryside along the route from Merthyr to Tredegar quite well - errrr... that is, I knew it quite well over twenty years ago. I'm getting old, I suppose, even at 45. Anyway, I love Wales, and have promised myself to go back and find lots of photogenic spots I missed in the past.
