Airport


There's a few small airports here on the east end of Long Island. The further east you go, the more likely you'll find a crop duster or two on a farm. This airport's big draw is skydiving. It's close to the south shore, but I'd bet you could see both shores from up in the sky.
I made this photo in the spring, but I don't think I posted it. So I'm offering it up for the transportation prompt for Carmi's Thematic Photographic-203.

As pretty as a painting! Such a peaceful setting. Great TP, I'll have to think about my offering as well....after work!

Very nice picture. Why's the rope tied to the plane?

I love that pic! The hedge and the sky add a huge perspective to it, and the hedge balances the photos. Great shot!

Great shot - the sky is lovely and moody.
I live in a rural area where at some times of the year these things drive us crazy... you may not know that aerial topdressing was first developed here in New Zealand, in the 1940s.

I love the sky as a backdrop.

Max, I bet that rope is to keep the wind from rolling the plane away.

We don't see crop dusters in the UK but the local airport has a flying club whith planes that look similar to this one.
Great shot, Steve.
