Sky Watch Friday # 3

¤


Condensation trail left behind jet aircrafts. (Called Contrails)
Contrails form when hot humid air from jet exhaust mixes with environmental air of low vapor pressure and low temperature.

Wonderful photos, john! I love them all!

Nydelige bilder fra deg i dag og! Jeg bare elsker slike himler. Springer for livet med kameraet og knipser vilt når jetflyene suser over hodet på meg. Hi hi hi. Dere skulle ha sett meg da;) Gu så skøy det er å være gal:)

Ha en hærlig SWF-dag:)

Well done... I thought about this last week but I went with the clouds that formed.. great set of pictures and shows just how easy or how hard a sky watch picture can be.

Thank you
Tom

Beautiful artwork here. Perhaps these lines were made just for you!

Carletta said...

Looks like they were having a good time up there! :)
I loved your photos from Easter in Spain as well.

quintarantino said...

I'm not very found of travelling by plane, but I do consider that plane trails on the sky always give us the chance of taking great photos.
Just like you did here.

imac said...

Really captured the feeling in your skies of the aircraft.

Did children take crayons and paint the sky?
I know it is from the airplanes..

fishing guy said...

You got some fancy ones. I recently took a photo of 4 in a row almost parallel to each other and two of the planes were still in view.

Travis said...

Nice capture. Your photos are always terrific. This is a great sky watch photo.

napaboaniya said...

The lines are beautiful. Thanks for sharing how they came about :)

Marie said...

Nokre loopar her så kunne det blitt eit frieri på himmelen. Kanskje noko for ein pilot i giftartankar?

Flott sky watch!

Ha en fin helg.

Randi said...

Utrolig flotte bilder!!

Det ble ingen SWF på meg i dag...brukte halve dagen på husarbeid...ja..husarbeid...ja så brukte jeg mange timer ute. Egentlig skulle jeg funnet frem bilder nå,så hadde jeg sittet klar neste Torsdag..skrevet ferdig innlegget og vips så er jeg klar.

Vel nå er jeg straks klar for Fredagskvelden...skal leke litt husmor..så får vi se om noen blir imponert..hahaha.

Ha fortsatt en finfin kveld dere også!!

Anemone said...

Nydelige bilder, og for et morsomt mønster. Får nå virkelig ikke håpe at de stripene på himmelen ble laget på noe samme tid :-)

Føltes befriende å skrive litt norsk igjen på denne kvald. Kunne ikke la vær.

Fin helg til deg

Small City Scenes said...

Very beautiful. Like ribbons in the sky. MB

Catherine said...

Beautiful captures~I didn't know they were called contrails!
This is my first visit to your blog~I am enjoying your beautiful photography!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Nice catches with your camera!

GAWO said...

Dette ser jo nesten litt skummelt ut. Håper at det ikke var nære på for enkelte fly som boltret seg på himmelen din. Forhåpentligvis så var det bare et fly med en flyger som slo seg litt løs i svingene.

lauapealne07 said...

I'll come here more, this is a place for relax!
I have thousands of pics in my foulders too, now I start to think I should share them like you did. The music is matching, all is great...You gave me a kick!

the teach said...

John, beautiful shots! Thanks for explaining what contrails are! :D

Irene said...

Very nice photos!

CherryPie said...

Wonderful clear sky and such bright colours :-)

just say these words said...

I like it when there's condensation in the sky...it's like someone's writing in them.

i must confess said...

Spectacular!

Sharon said...

what a great collection! There are so many of them in that first picture!

chanpheng said...

Those pictures are pretty cool. Looks like the jets were dancing in the sky.

Annie said...

It looks like planes were playing in the air.

YesBut said...

Great images - especially the B&W taken by your mom.

Dancin' Fool said...

Blimey busy air space! It's like you caught the planes playing. Wonderful shots.

Garden Angel said...

Hei igjen John!
Takk for koselig kommentar hos meg, spes. ang. nøtteliten-serien:)
Jeg er veldig fornøyd med den selv! Har mange fler enn de jeg viste på bloggen. Men det er jo litt begrenset med hvor mange folk gidder å se på kanskje:)

Dere får ha en fin dag, og kose dere masse med tulla:)

*Nydelig bakgrunnsmusikk her!

Hilsen meg over elva(",)

Scotty Graham said...

HI John,

Thanks for visiting my blog. To answer your question...no, that image was not an HDR image. Although I have many HDR images, this one only appears to be HDR with the post processing I did in Adobe Lightroom. I also did some sharpening which has the tendency to give the photo a "drawing" like effect.

I enjoyed browsing through your blog. Keep up the excellent work.

Cheers,
Scotty

Andrée said...

Wow, that was a lot of jets. It made for a beautiful photo.

gardenpath said...

I am always interested in the shapes these trails form. You caught some nice ones.

Dewdrop said...

Contrails are so cool! I love it when the atmosphere is just right and the contrails remain for a while. It looks like children have taken markers and scribbled all over the sky.
