Thanks Dave - I almost missed it - the flight was through the night 1.20 am until 5.15 am and I fell asleep (I NEVER sleep on a plane....typical) and had wanted to get the sunrise. I literally just woke in time! Another minute or two and I would have missed it.

Yes, similar subject. I love airports. The hustle, the bustle, the excitement of going away (or the relief at last to be coming home),the booms of takeoff, the size of the planes. I love people watching too and it's a great place to do it.

Thanks for your kind words on my image in the gallery, much appreciated.

Hi everyone, I've been pretty busy lately so I haven't checked in for a while. 

My entry was taken with my compact camera (Sony RX100) that I take along for family outings etc when I don't want lug around the D700.  This is a long wooden bridge that crosses a local bay.
