I’ve pulled these five photos from my external SSD backup drive, photos from around the city in 2019. Happy Monday!
Here are a few more Nikon photos from yesterday on the approach path to runway 25L at the east end of the airport. Most of my flights returning home from Michigan have landed on the runway which is 10,526 feet long, and 150 feet wide. The photo of the airport sign is an iPhone 12 photo captured while stopped for traffic.
Not wanting to sit around the house today, I headed for McCarran International Airport for some aircraft photos and video. It’s been a while since I’ve done this. I was disappointed to see that the observation area along Sunset Road has been closed down tight.
It’s a location where you can get some lovely touchdown photos through the fence. After I captured a few photos with the Nikon and iPhone 12, I headed for a breakfast joint very nearby. While eating, I had a nice chat with a lovely lady who was just getting started in photography with a Nikon D700.
We exchanged information, we shall see if we end up going out for a shoot together. This set is all from the Nikon using the 50mm and 24/70mm lenses. I used the 50mm lens for the short video clip. The airliners are roughly 200 feet above me, so close and I love that!
