After the New Year one of my projects is to go through my photographs, organize my catalogs and back up everything to external hard drives and start with new backups. In the process I remove some folders from my laptop to free up space and archive them.
This plane is from the Vintage Wings of Canada in Quebec. This is the write up about the plane from their website.

Lucky Shot. This truly was exactly that. While usually I have a mind set to go and shoot something, loading up my gear, driving to a location at a specific time, checking the weather forecast, the sunset times, making sure I have the correct clothing, none of that was the case for this shot.
I was sitting in the living room, watching the news on TV before we went out to grab a fish fry for dinner on Friday night. I got up and walked across the room, looked out the window at the sunset, noticed the snow flurries in the air, how they sparkled in the bright light of the setting sun. I thought that's pretty cool and grabbed my "everyday run out the door" camera opened the sliding glass door and snapped away. I've gotten quite a lot of comments mentioning the surreal, painterly look of this photo. While I do use filters and post edit sometimes to achieve a look, the same thing as capturing the photo applies, that was not the case for this shot.
