Sepia Scenes - Airborne

Sepia Scenes arrives, and as the warmer seasonal sun starts to move in, we gaze upwards. Perhaps to the classic sound of a piston engine airplane with its propeller pulling the craft through the sky.


Off we go into the wild sepia yonder (to paraphrase the US Air Force song), the aerobatic aircraft performing that fast vertical climbs up or quick descents down. These light and powerful devices move with speed and the daring pilots seem to pull up out of trouble at the last possible second (!) to the gasps of the spectators below who applaud their daring moves.


The sepia sky tones down the sky scene and allows us to better admire the aerodynamically styled aluminum 'birds' during their performance. See Mary's fun meme for more sepia, be it still or in motion...

It's nice to see the sky in blue, but in sepia, it works too!

Great capture Ralph! Love the two different pair of patterns on the planes. Like it a lot :)
Perfect for sepia too!

The sepia sure enhances the "birds".
Lovely pattern, but I feel safer when watching them from the ground.
They are tiny, aren't they?

Thanks for your greeting :-)
Great shot and interesting idea.

Look at that. It's almost like reverse images side by side. Nice.

I agree with you and the rest that the sepia puts the focus on the planes. Cool shot!
