I love you wink wink! You have no idea how obsessed I am with planes (Peanut may have an idea from the USA thread!) so this weeks challenge is right up my alley. Thank you, I go to the airport to do some plane-spotting every week and now this week I have an excuse!
Great win too, that cake has me craving all sorts of sweet stuff now!
Posted 19 February 2013 - 09:29 AM
Heh heh Kee!
There's no end of planes, trains and automobiles in this household...!
Posted 19 February 2013 - 12:08 PM
Good topic winkwink! Just wondering if it is just planes, trains & automobiles only? Or can it be along the same sort of theme with helicopters, boats etc?
Posted 19 February 2013 - 05:43 PM
Oh yay Kee, I was so worried everyone would find it boring. Peanut we also have an endless supply in our household and he knows them all by name
blue4me - I don't see why it can't be all modes of transportation, so helicopters and boats are fine
Posted 20 February 2013 - 10:02 AM
Hoping to jump back into weekly challenges with this theme May have to take the camera into work
Posted 20 February 2013 - 11:15 AM
I love going to the viewing area too Kee, it is a great spot. I have only taken my camera a couple of times though. Would love to see the shots you have taken down there.
Posted 25 February 2013 - 03:24 PM
That's beautiful rbat! In stark contrast, here's mine from this morning ... in the rain. Gotta love Adelaide!
It seems on the week I thought this challenge was right up my alley, I've had no time to head to the airport purely for photo-taking (only to drop people off for flights) and no chance even when I have been near to get a decent shot. This is not a favourite at all but will have to do ... I've also loaded a couple of others I took while dropping off my cousin at the airport but they were rushed and boring shots.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
Maybe everyone else has spectacular shots they are waiting until the last minute to post - just to keep us guessing??
Posted 25 February 2013 - 03:31 PM
Ok have been stalking you all for ages determined to participate but have been slack. Not sure if this is how you link an image but here I go.
Love the entries so far
Posted 25 February 2013 - 03:53 PM
Love all the photos so far!
Here is mine of a silly fishing trawler that got stuck on the rocks too close to shore. Helicopters kept buzzing over and also the runway is not far away so there were several planes landing or taking off while I was sitting around.

Another dismal attempt from me. We are flooded in again, however. So at least I have a decent excuse..lol.

I wish I had an image to enter but its not been a very good week and now its already Monday, gah!
Now that I've seen the entries posted I'm glad I didn't attempt the old raid from DS's toybox photo. It wouldn't be nearly as good as your shots girls!
Good luck choosing a winner Wendy...!
Posted 25 February 2013 - 04:26 PM
Another who didn't get a chance to do anything this week.
Some fantastic images to chose from though
Posted 25 February 2013 - 06:00 PM
Great shots ladies.
I had planned to go out and take light trails of the car lights....but it rained every evening.
So had about 5 mins today and went out to practice panning. Definitely need loads more practice!

So good to come back in tonight to see all these amazing entries. I was getting a little worried when I checked earlier today. I'm not very good at feedback so apologies for lack of technical comments. Sorry for the delay, I'm addicted to My Kitchen Rules so have been glued to the tv
rbat - Oh my goodness, that sky is amazing, the colours are spectacular and I love your composition of the plane.
Kee - Really love the perspective of this shot. The viewing area at Adelaide airport seems a lot less restricted than up here. I hope it dries up by Saturday when I'm flying down there.
strangelittlebunny - I love it, such a cute car the little Bambino and in amazing condition. The men in my family are totally car mad, my brother in law bought one of these several years ago just because he could. I'm average height (5'5") but remember my head could nearly poke out the sunroof when we went for a drive. It was so much fun!
blue4me - I was wondering if someone would capture more than one mode of transport in a shot. Absolutely brilliant! I also didn't see the other boat until a second look, I love the dark clouds as well. Very well done.
Bryden - I'm going to judge on your first shot since it's the one you prefer. It's also my pick of the two It's been a couple of years since we went to the Big Pineapple but my DS loved going on the train. I love the perspective on this one, it's like you are going on an adventure into the woodlands. Is the Nut Mobile still running?
silverwattle - I salute you! I have tried so many times and I just cannot get panning, so I'm very impressed with your capture. Love the black & white and wonder if the driver is waving to you as they pass?
PrincessPinkenit - I like the moody almost eerie feeling and the way the lights are glowing against the trains. If I was there however I'd probably be running to my car, I get spooked very easy.
So sorry it's taken me so long, I kept going over and over all the wonderful shots. I have a couple of favourites, but the winner this week belongs to............
On a side note to all the Brisbane girls, I hope you're staying dry and not affected by any flooding. I can't believe how much rain has fallen today.

Well done blue4me, your photo is epic!
Top job with the judging Wendy, it wouldn't have been an easy job. We are high and dry with no flooding, however the recent rains have encouraged a high birth rate among the local frog population so we had a full-on choir going last night. The babies are so cute, but LOUD!!

Congratulations blue4me, nice shot. And thanks to all for making me feel welcome I am going to try and participate in challenges as much as I can.
Posted 26 February 2013 - 01:14 PM
Oh wow thankyou!
I have to duck out to pick up DS1 so I will have a think about the next challenge topic and post it a bit later.
