The story behind this image

Our accomodation for the week long holiday that Liz and I enjoyed in Croatia in the summer of 2019 was a top floor apartment near Trogir on the Adriatic coast.

The outlook from the balcony wasn't great, although we did have a view of planes coming in on approach to the airport at Split, further along the coast.

So with a long lens fitted to my camera, and a judicious bit of framing to avoid other buildings, telegraph poles and so on, I was able to take this image of a plane on approach over the Croatian coast, set against the glowing orange twilight sky.

Quite an evocative image, given the cisrumstances!
