The story behind the Photograph

My son and I love watching hot air balloons take off and land. However, on that day in January last year when he decided that he wanted to go in a hot air balloon ride we drove all the way to the site which is pretty close to the airport. Sadly when we landed there we realized that the services were suspended for a couple of days due to some emergency. So, we decided to drive further till the airport and watch the planes take off and land. This was before the lock down started. 

We drove to an alley behind the airport which has acres of farmland and no buildings to restrict our view. As we waited for the planes to land or take off from that direction we noticed that a number of dragon flies were flying low. However, it was hard to focus on these and get a decent picture as the midday sun deterred our plans. We also missed a couple of planes that flew past us as it was sudden. 

As I stood still and ready with my camera I noticed a plane take off. I was thrilled to get this image of the dragon fly and the plane in one shot. Though my son was disappointed that he did not get his hot air balloon ride, he was thrilled with some of the sights we saw that day.

The plane was just over head when I captured this image and it looks like the plane and the dragon flying were doing a sortie of some sort together. Though there are hundreds of other lovely photographs I have taken this one is the most creative of the lot .
