Trails

This week I was struggling to find time and energy to shoot anything. My wife was coming back from a trip and i went to pick her up from the airport and I decided to take few shots there while waiting. These are planes taking off, shot with a very long exposure time. I have been toying with this idea before and I believe I'm going to go and make more of these. It was quite clear night with low hanging clouds and the light from Oakland and San Francisco painted the sky orange. I'll have to find a better location so that I would have less background light and can fit more planes into the same shot.
