One Plane Alone at the End of the Night

Upcoming Guest Blogger

In not too long, I look forward to featuring a surprise guest blogger sometime this week.  I have the whole article ready to go, and we will spring it on you soon!

You might enjoy these previous guest bloggers, for something a bit different:

  • Miss Aniela – a photographer friend in the UK.  Maybe I can talk her into stopping by the workshop!
  • Kook Ewo – with a name like that, he’s gotta be cool!

Daily Photo – One Plane Alone at the End of the Night

Here we are at Santa Monica Airport deep in the night.  It was quiet.  And peaceful.

I spend a massive amount of time at airports.  I’m usually totally alone, and, most of the time, this is perfectly all right.  I’ve developed an ever-changing internal dialog that keeps me mentally stimulated at all times.  I’m glad no one can read my thoughts… surely they would find the cacophonous chorus to be the height of lunacy.  And then, when things finally bubble over, well, it is nice to have a kindred spirit around.

    Beautiful – all orange and glowing! I don’t think I’ve been to this airport and my parents used to live there! Super Trey!

    Nice capture. The runway almost looks as if it is made of wood.

    You can do much better.

    Darrin, I was thinking the same thing. SM airport is only about two miles from where I live. I’m pretty sure, if I was down there rummaging around in the dark, I’d get security on me.. LOL.

    Trey, you apply a warm PS filter on that? Curves?

    Nice color.

    Stunning image! The light reflecting off the corrugated panel makes it look like water.

    Thanks — no worries Mario

    Richard – there was a warm light, and the long exposure made it extra-orange. I get the same thing when shooting indoors with warm lights and long exposures. I like the effect a lot! :)

    Philipp – hehe – yes I did not notice that! :)

    What a night HDR photo no noise at all. If this photo shot with my Canon 400D and lense kit, sure will full with noise. Lots of work to be done in clearing the noise.

    A good friend once said that truly intelligent people are never bored, because they always have something interesting to think about.

    I remember his words fondly whenever I am dying of boredom.

    Love the roof reflection/texture/color. That is really something!
