Twilight from the plane

By
Real Estate Agent with A1 Connection Realty, Inc.
While returning from my vacation, I took this photo.  The sun had just set, and twilight was just kicking in.
I noticed the moon and a bright star below it.  Oh, if only I had a better camera.  The big circle below the moon is a reflection of my camera agains the airplane window.
Sadly, the moon and star were much large and brighter than they appear in this photo.  







Hope you enjoy it anyway.

Very nice pictures Hal.  I love the colors and the shot of the moon and star is great even with the cameras reflection.

Hal... Yeah, those small "point & shoot" cameras do have their limitations. Good photo's anyway...

Morning Sally,

I have to admit, the experience was moving. These were some of my favorite shots.

Hi Hal, Stunning photos.  I have the same problem, when I go to take a stunning picture of the beautiful night sky, it just doesn't turn out as well as I'd like. Time to invest in a better camera, I suppose. Stay warm.

Hi Sandy,

For the most part, the camera I have does a good job. Just once in a while the night lights don't come out the way I would like them. No swimming today, it was only in the high  50's here.

Hal, I wish my airplane window shots were as good as yours. I seem to always sit in a seat with either dirty or scratched up windows. Beautiful!!!

Hi Paul,

There are times I sit in front of that window you speak of. I just take advantage of the good one when I am blessed with it. Thanks for commenting.

I always try to book a window seat in planes because I love to take photos of the views.  The most recent ones I took were taken facing West as the sun was about to rise so it has those beautiful pink/mauve/light blue colors in the horizon.  You were lucky to get a good one of the moon and a bright star just below it.
