Blue Sky and Contrails



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I was too late to get the plane that left these contrails over our house, but they looked so nice in the beautiful blue sky that I couldn't resist snapping this picture.

Great picture - looks like big ribbons in the sky! We set a record high in GA yesterday (95) ~ I sure hope we get some cooler temps SOON!

Interesting George. And did you notice that the contrails appear to go straight up from the ground. I also snapped a couple pics of contrails recently from here because I noticed that they looked vertical instead of the normal horizontal.

Better without the planes - more of a mysterious effect. I know contrails aren't good for us, but they do make for interesting skies.

Thanks for the lesson in words. Today contrails is no longer a foreign word for me. I used to call this an airplane's jet stream.

Nice photo. I like to watch them get wider and wider until they disappear.

What a gorgeous blue sky, and free from clouds except the white contrails.
