moon rise with contrails


tonight with moonrise, there were numerous contrails from one airplane after another flying from the eastern horizon high in the air to almost directly over my head. the moonlight illuminated these condensation trails and made them look so magical and futuristic. it was difficult to capture them in the dark with no tripod, the camera resting on the hood of the car. so this is one time i'm going to suggest that you be content with this smaller picture than click for the larger, less focused one.

It is beautiful, so is the larger one. Out of focus is part of life, too. Merry Christmas, <:3 Jenny

I think the bigger picture is just as good and shows the contrails better. Either way, it is a great photo.

Happy Christmas Eve.

I learned a new word--had to look up "contrails".
