Plane spotting in Pico Rivera

Ruth LuSan was on her way to do some plane spotting in Santa Fe Springs in early October. A factory fire in the area kept her away, however, so she made do with a Norm's parking lot in neighboring Pico Rivera.

"This put me farther from the planes, and they were coming in higher due to the smoke, but together with the early rising moon, I was able to easily frame both the moon and the plane together," she said.

LuSan used a DMC-FZ35.
