GLOWING……way up there.

22 Sep

I took this picture about 2 hours ago and I promise you I have done ABSOLUTELY nothing to it at all….except reduce the original quality because I have dialup and uploading large pictures is both nearly impossible ans usually results in a half-picture distorted.
I would imaging most of you see these many times every day but up here I probably don’t see even 1 a day most days.
The sun was very low and I took several of it coming, overhead and as it was leaving ( this picture ).
When I reviewed them I was ABSOLUTELY enchanted by the almost magical glow it seems to have.
I often think of who is on the plane and where they are going and how strange it is that I am here…watching their progress and they are completely unaware of me.
Let me know what you think of it….good or bad…..I want it ALL!!!

    I think this is an amazing photo. Often we see jets in the sky above us, but it is mostly just the contrail and a blurry shape that we know is the plane. This one is so detailed, you can almost see the engines.

    You really do live out in the sticks – I'm Pretty sure the glow is caused by reflected sunlight. LOL I take these all the time but rarely post cause I don't think others share my awe and bewonderment.

    It does seem to have an eerie glow about it, keeping an eye on the vapour trail and watching it change can also take up a few minutes while you muse about who's on the plane and where it's going.

    The jet flying off into the distance makes me think of how large our universe is.

    the clarity is just awesome…especially against that bright blue sky! This image makes me realize how small we are!

    In this case less is definitely more! An iconic photo…Why tinker with something that is perfect SOOC? Isn't that a photographer's goal anyway? If one wanted to play it could be the canvas for a terrific quote or a single word. On that plane someone is coming and someone is going. For some,time is standing still and some it is speeding by. There is both anticipation and dread….lots of stories coming together on one plane. I think it is super that the outline of the plane is clearly visible. Well done!
