Sunday Stills - Numbers (And Then Some)

Yesterday I volunteered to help with the Young Eagles day at the Cynthiana Airport. I originally had a desk job, but the person signed up to take photographs asked to trade jobs and I jumped on it. I love airplanes!



I took lots of pictures of excited kids, but also spent some time trying to capture other shots, especially moving planes, following the plane with my camera so the plane stayed sharp while the background showed the movement. Not too dramatic on take off and landing, but if you wait until they are in the air...well blue sky looks the same moving or not ;-).



I also wanted to capture a plane taking off next to the tractor and finally got one - hard to time. Yes, the air strip in in the middle of a cornfield :-).



Look at the exhaust trail.



There were 10 really cool planes flying yesterday, but this one became my favorite. Why?



There's our farm!!! See the three small run in sheds? That's how I spotted it.



I've circled the perimeter.

There were only two horses out - Hickory and T-Bone. Hank and all the sheep were inside, cashed out in front of the fans. Saint Tim and City Boy were out on the river and couldn't wave to us from the back yard. Oh well. Maybe next time ;-).



I like the reflection under the wing.

The whole day was super fun (I'd participated in a Young Eagles flight as a kid), the flight was AWESOME (Janbaby was with me :-) and I can't wait for next year!

For more Sunday Stills...

Up in the air, Junior Birdman! Did you wear your badge of tin?
What incredible photos you got of the Equinox Farm. I know know where the infamous “pond” is. Very cool day indeed!

Great shot to the exhaust trail behind the plane ........ but LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the farm, I am so jealous cause it is all green, green, GREEN. Guess I am green with envy. Is that about 20 acres? I have aerial photo of home here but neighbor pilot took it because of fire behind me several years ago that got little over 2 acres above the barn. Nice surrounding countryside too.

It's funny, your farm looks so much more rural from the air. From the ground it feels like your neighbors are right there. And your barn looks more modern from that high up.

Excellent shots from a fun,fun day. Is 20 enrolled in the program?? Great pics of the farm. People pay lots of money for shots not even that nice. A perk for sure!

dibear said...

What an awesome time!! Great pictures as well, you'll treasure these. :)

Linda said...

I'm just a tad jealous too;) I can see why you like those numbers. You live in such pretty countryside.

Michelle said...

This sounds like such fun! Cool that you spotted your farm!

farmlady said...

Oh, this looks like fun. I would love to see our area and our farm from a small plane.
Great photos. The exhaust trails looks like you drew them... with their perfect little swirls.

Janice said...

Good shots...but I have to say my fav is your farm shot...lovely.

Terry said...

Lucky you! A fun day, and such a lovely farm!

Now I wonder if they all thought when they looked up "could mom be up there in that metal can in the sky that flies???"

"nah..." and they go back to eating...

Your farm is beautiful from the air! What a fun day!:)
