...the late summer grasses in the setting sun,
...and sometimes the rising moon.
And on this particular afternoon, also the many small planes taking off and landing right nearby at Northampton Airport.
We often catch one or two coming or going when we're here.
But the small field was particularly busy at this hour, on this day.
No sooner had one revved up and lifted off,
...when another was coming in.
We counted five or six in the space of a half hour.
The busiest we had ever seen it. Must be the perfect weather bringing out all the pilots and their magnificent flying machines.
A speedier mode of travel...
...can hardly be imagined.
