Homeward bound

Shot from the aircraft on my flight home as the aircraft turns and aligns for the take-off run. The long runway seems to run right to the horizon.

Winter Flowers again | Nikon 80-200 mm f2.8 AFD

Another shot of the cosmos flowers in the early morning light. The Nikon 80-200 mm f2.8 AFD at f2.8 creates a lovely bokeh that is practically unmatched by any one of my current lenses barring a few fast primes and a Micro Nikkor.

Winter flowers in bloom in our terrace garden. The morning sun provided the soft light for the back-lit flowers.
