We went out to the model airplane flying field this morning just as the sun was coming up.  I took quite a few photos with the tripod but felt I was missing the glider… so I took the camera off the tripod and started to just follow the glider with the camera. This lucky shot was taken while facing east into the sun… post-processing consisted of a crop (to give the glider more room in front rather than behind) and adjusted the black point to darken the silhouette a wee bit.

With as many photos as I’ve taken at the flying field, I felt I would have been remiss not post at least one for this month’s “flight” theme!

Do you remember the July 2nd Friday Assignment?  I went back to find that beach ball… it took a couple tries but I finally caught up with it.  Here’s how it spent its summer vacation.

Mr. Beachball found again in the desert… wind blown from original location.

The picture that I wanted that I didn’t get was all of these wild turkeys eating the grass right outside the tent that my niece Devon was still sound asleep in.  She was already unhappy about sleeping in a tent and if she’d woken to these larger-than-life birds….   By the time I grabbed my camera, remembered to remove the lens cap, etc, etc, well the geese were fleeing (another way of taking flight).  I followed them for awhile but the available light only got worse once we were in the woods.

Added vignette. But really it is one more of my blurry NH photos.
