It's that time of year again. It is generally dark when I get home from work, so that means I need to try some nighttime shots. This time I wanted to try something different, so I tried to get some nighttime shots of the airport.
There is a spot at the main parking deck where you are overlooking some of the gates. The spots are usually occupied by MD-88's and CRJs. This particular plane is an MD-88 getting ready to head to Raleigh-Durham.
For this picture, I was inspired by a picture on one of the aviation groups on Facebook. He had a sunset shot of this terminal. I thought a night shot would look cooler.
The MD-88 from the first picture getting ready to take off. This was a little trickier because the plane was moving. Still, not too bad of an attempt.
A Skywest CRJ-900 heading to San Antonio. I like this one a little better but I thought the runways were a little better lit.
A 757 coming in for a landing.
After fiddling around with some of the settings. This shot actually gives me a little hope.
And this one gave me the most hope of all of them. A Skywest CRJ-200 heading to Escanaba. Since it was dark, I would say it ended up under the moonlight.
