This weekend I was out shooting with a friend and we drove by the Groton – New London Airport and she pointed out that at night the airport runway was lit with the blue lights marking the runway paths every night. I had never even thought about that; I was surprised to learn it was open/lit at night; it is a very small regional airport. So tonight I headed that way to see what it was like.
I did find the runway all lit up, and pulled over and set up my tripod right up near the fence. As I was shooting, I was a little concerned that a police officer might pass by and tell me to stop. Not that I was breaking any rules that I know of, but in this day and age, people can be paranoid.
Since there was no real foreground interest items to focus on, I decided to play with the focus and crop/composition to try and be creative. In Lightroom, I played with the white balance and saturation to change the colors a bit. I found that the level, in-focus shots were boring. So I broke rules 🙂 You can see part of the fence I shot through, but I like what it does.
