Warmer weather brought me to Randall Airport recently. While raking leftover leaves in front of my house, I could see planes towing gliders into the sky and decided to make the short drive to the airport.
I did not have to wait long to get pictures of a plane and glider taking off.
This pilot flew low over the airport before coming in for a landing.
I saw this ultralight flying from by house. But when I got to the airport the pilot was finished flying and just lifted a few feet off the runway once or twice.
The photograph I really wanted to get was the balloon and the moon, which was in the eastern sky.The problem was that I was so close to the balloon that I had to use a wide angle lens. A telephoto lens would have made the moon larger in the frame.The first photo below is with a wide angle. The second and third photos are with a longer zoom lens.
Here's a slideshow of more photos from the airport that evening:
