Driving West past New York’s Kennedy Airport the other night, the sunset was just beautiful. As my husband drove,I couldn’t resist trying to capture the beauty though the fences, street lights and wires kept getting in the way. The cloud cover above the sunset added to its beauty.
I have done nothing to alter the color in this photo- the sky was really this intense.
As luck would have it, a plane came into my view finder as it approached the airport, and I was able to catch it. I did not have to zoom in- the plane was very close. Airports are no longer built as LaGuardia and Kennedy were- so close in proximity to major highways. The planes fly very low over major thoroughfares – especially on the Grand Central Parkway, where the landing gear sometimes feels like it will hit the roof your car!
