Air Show in my area. This was a really good shot of the plane taking off from the air show we attended. It is a bomber plane and they flew it back and forth giving everybody a good show.

2nd Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Crop duster over the Palouse

"I had traveled to the Palouse region to take landscape images of the rolling farmland and the abstract patterns created by the crops being cut in large swaths," says Whiston. "I was out early one morning and heard the engine from a crop-duster, and then saw him dropping down low between the hills and spraying the fields. What caught my eye was the shadow underneath the airplane, emphasizing how low these pilots fly on a routine basis."
