Travelling Light

The Airport is Sunglasses

In the year of 2016, a change of pace and creative direction- photographic artwork inspired by light, jet turbines and the smell of kerosine in the dark at the local airport during a stint of experimentation with night capture software and processing, basically just to see what I could do within the limitations of the then-current iPhone hardware.

All pictures were taken with iPhone 4 & 5, which limited the resolution somewhat, but the results are pleasing.

Each night capture takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to make, then composition of the exposures done (also on the iPhone). Mrs RedHeat and myself were at the airport on such a regular basis we got quite familiar with the awesome staff and employees at the various establishments within the terminal.

The view is astonishingly beautiful especially at sunset as the terminal has been deliberately built to take the positioning of the sunlight to make maximum use of it within the building itself as well as a pleasant place to sit on the panorama terrace, upstairs and outside with a full unobstructed view of the entire airfield and a head-on view of nearly all of the gates with S2 being directly in front and center.
