I was standing in a parking lot at Ryan Ranch in Monterey directly below the flight path for the landing approach to the Monterey Regional Airport. I had been there many times before and  knew it was below the flight path. But this time, I finally brought my camera with me to wait for approaching planes. Several jets landed before this commercial 2-engine prop passenger plane. Even though there were wispy clouds and it was mid-afternoon, the moon was out and I got the shot capturing both the plane and the moon.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF17-40mm f/4L lens, 1/1000 sec at f/4, ISO 100 and then post-processed using Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2 and Color Efex Pro 4 filters.
