Daily Post Challenge – Look Up

In response to the WordPress Daily Post challenge <a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/look-up/”>Look Up</a>

Contrails
Contrails in the sky outside my house

Sometimes you get a truly gorgeous sky but without some other element to make a picture I rarely feel justified in shooting just the sky. When I saw these jet airliner contrails though I knew I had the elements for a good photograph. First, the clouds are wonderful in the winter light. Second, the contrails, each one going in a different direction but together feeling like a modernist poster extolling the virtues of technological progress.

Trails like this are more usually a problem for a landscape photographer of the traditionally picturesque but in this case they make the composition.
