Night Flight

I have only ever done light trails once before, of traffic in Kos town. This time, I wanted to do something different, 'airways' light trails. I have been staying at my friends hotel, which is directly beneath the flight path, where the aircraft come into land at Kos Airport. This is the DY6292 from Oslo to Kos night flight. I set my camera up on a tripod, set to 30 sec exposure and kept the ISO down to 200, to avoid noise. I'm quite pleased with the simplistic, yet effective result I got.
You can see another shot I got, from an earlier flight, on my other album, but in that one I feel that the settings were slightly over-exposed, although it does show the stars in the background. Many thanks for viewing and your wonderful support on my pictures, much appreciated.
As I didn't have my laptop with me whilst staying at the hotel, I apologise that I'm a bit behind with commenting, so I hope to catch up with all over the next few days.
FANTASTIC! - well done.

Superb Rosie, I have tried this with the planes that fly over our house, but not as good as yours!
