This past Friday was a very overcast day in the valley and the late afternoon brought some very even and subtle color. I was at the airport practicing the technique of panning with a moving subject to get that great motion blur of the surroundings while keeping the subject sharp. I noticed the color changing and the clouds opening up a bit towards the north and thought that would make a nice backdrop for an arriving plane.

While I didn't get any great shots of blurred backgrounds, I did learn a lot about the technique and it was great to be out watching the planes coming and going.
