The Photo Challenge this weekend from Weekly Prompts, the site I share with my partner GC is WINGS.
My personal offering to our photo challenge is a mixed bag of wings, both in and out of view!
During a rare break from the heavy rain last week, I enjoyed a morning walk around the Tarn. This local lake is situated close to Leeds and Bradford Airport, Yorkshire, England. The western end of the longest runway runs just above the northern edge of the lake.
On this day I timed my walk so that I could stop en route at the embankment just around the bend from the Tarn.
From my vantage viewing spot, I watched the planes take off that were destined for Gdansk, Paris, Krakow, Barcelona and Amsterdam. Unfortunately, my camera jammed when zooming in so I didn’t capture as many photos as I would have liked.
The above pictures were of the same aircraft; I managed to get the second shot just as it passed under a large patch of blue sky!
My mobile phone (cell phone) was tuned into Live Departures and whilst walking around the lake I watched other planes fly off to Nice, Alicante and Palma De Mallorca. If the wind had been blowing in the opposite direction I would have missed this sight.
There are other lakes and reservoirs nearby, but the Tarn remains my favourite, and very conveniently, it’s less than ten minutes drive from home.
The swans were as beautiful as ever and I spotted a couple of young ones still sporting their darker feathers.
I enjoy walking around the lake and watching the wildlife; seeing the planes take off is a bonus that adds to my pleasure.
