Both images were taken in Yardley PA (3 miles SW from the center of Trenton NJ, USA) on March 14, 1997 using a 300 mm lens shot on Fuji Neopan 1600 ASA black and white film. A moment of co-incidence produces a striking juxtaposition of technology and nature with the passing aircraft shot. Approx. a 20 sec exposure at f5.6. The shot with the trees was a bulb exposure of > 1 min with the same lens and aperture. Both were shot between 19:00 and 19:30 EST.
