Kenmore Air Coming in for a Landing


Kenmore Air Coming in for a Landing

A float plane over Lake Union passes Gas Works Park as it prepares to land. I never tire of watching the flights come and go, and sometimes wonder at all the boat and plane traffic maneuvering on the lake in the graceful ballet of air and water craft that plays out here daily.

Wow. I could probably spend a few days at the Gas Works Park.

I really admire the composition of this, Kim.

Kenmore Air? Is that a plane that is sold by Sears? :-)

You and JUlie of Scottsdale Daily Photo each posted photos of planes today, yours with a dramatic composition of the gas works in the foreground, and Julie's with dramatic clouds in the background.

This photo seems to have a 'life and death' feel to it. I really like it :)

Great photo! I like the foreground, too.

Fantastic textures on the old tank (?) and pipes!

Bibi said...

Oooh....am I the only one thinking of 9/11? Aside from that, I like how you caught the plane and the 'gasworks.'

Kim said...

Thanks guys!

@ Bibi, gosh, I never thought of it, but a plane heading toward two structures. . .of course!

I always like to watch the planes from their little airport on Lake Washington in Kenmore. I used to go right to the water and watch the daily activities.

thanks for visiting my blog. MB
