I went for a walk at Coogee Beach in Sydney last night, but I wasn't expecting to see all the planes queued up to land on the East-West runway!

Thanks Jer! If I'd had a K5 I could have photographed the planes themselves, but this is more interesting IMO instead of a couple of white spots in the frame.

Thanks Bob! Wish I cold have taken a vertical shot but the tripod wouldn't allow it.
(a vertical shot would have allowed more of the closer plane's light trail)

It was kind of a surreal night - the last time I was at Coogee at night was to see the band Simple Minds. I think that was late 1983!
