    Last week, I visited our airport to attempt to photograph some arrivals. It was great watching the lanes fly into the airport and a great opportunity to learn.

    Here are some of the images from that day.

    I lost a bit of sharpening upon export :(

    Got a bit greedy and clipped the wing.

    @IIGQ4U - Hope you weren't taking photos with something similar to what's on your avatar pic! Airport security may confuse that with a portable SAM! :)

    Low flyers of a different kind

    Great shots, I love airports and planes. Here in southern Australia a lot of people have gone to airports and have not travelled. Volcanic Ash from Chile has played havoc with Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Tasmania and Perth airports. Many travelers have had to make other travel plans, like using rail or buses. This reminded me of some of my steam rail photos which I am attaching. Taken on my G1 with 14-45 zoom lens. The place is Maldon - Castlemaine tourist rail in Central Victoria.
    Cheers
