DC-3: “A collection of parts flying in loose formation”

DC-3 at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, USA.  The first DC-3 was built in 1936, and revolutionized air travel with it’s ability to carry 21 passengers across the continental United States in 17 hours with only 3 refueling stops!  The DC-3 may very well be the oldest plane *still* in commercial operation.  Nikon D800, Nikkor 20mm f/2, f/5.6, 1/60 sec, ISO-1600.   Source: Wikipedia.

Heritage Park Sunrise #3
Sunrise a couple days ago at Heritage Park in Canton, Michigan. Nikon D800, Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 at f/13, 1/400 sec, ISO-200.  Light editing with the “built in” Photos app in Windows 8.1 (which I have to say was a pleasant surprise when I updated my v1 Surface tablet to Windows 8.1).

BTW, I also recently posted a similar image on 500px, entitled Heritage Park Sunrise #4.
