    I took a ride out to Eastham this evening for some sunset shots. Eastham faces north-east, so I had some lovely light with the sun behind me and, interestingly, it's directly opposite Liverpool airport and right in landing planes' paths over the river.

    I was framing a shot of some railings and an information stone when I heard the familiar rumble of a plane approaching. I waited until it was in the frame, then set my 30-second exposure off to catch some light trails.

    I'm not amazingly fond of the shot itself — I think it's a bit too busy — but the pattern the plane's lights made was very interesting.

    Have a look for yourselves! :)

    edit: and here's a 100% crop so you can see the pattern in more detail.

    Very cool!

    Now we know where old planes go -- the big landing strip in the sky :lmao:
