Sky Watch #37

It's skywatch time of the week again. I'll put Valley of Fire series on hold for a couple of days to give way to sky watch today and photo hunt tomorrow.
This series of photos were shot between 5:45 pm to 6:00 pm on February 5, 2009 from my work parking lot. I normally don't do some shooting when I'm around work but I already clocked out and was about to drive out when I spotted this interesting sky.

It became more interesting when a plane came into view. The airport is not too far from where I work.
Happy Skywatching everyone. For more skywatch photos, please visit here.

  13. Love the dramatic sky! Shooting airplanes is not the easiest thing to do - I have tried several times. I prefer your shots!

  14. The second one is the best one for me, it gives an interesting division in the sky, the barrier of clouds seems to mark two spaces, the plane adds depth and movement, yes : eye candy, well done !

  32. It seemed as if the plane was aiming for that hole in the clouds and in the last one it had gone through. Good aim. From you too.
