Always trying something new

I like to try something new and have never tried panning before. I was on top of a hill and took this series of shots of an aeroplane flying by to see what they would turn out like. Not half bad for a first attempt, even if I must say so myself. LOL!! Well okay, I did cut off the tips of the wings here and there, but you cannot adjust focus and distance with one hand at the same time. LOL!! At least, I can't!! As it is the middle of winter, it was a bit hazy out there and the sky was not very clear as you can see.
