Skywatch Friday: Blazing Streak


One of the most wonderful things about sunsets are the surprises you see on the camera after the shot is taken. I love the way this airplane trail ended up being the focal point when I snapped the shutter. Kismet.

To see other glorious shots from around the world, check out Skywatch!

Thanks for stopping by. And don't forget to look up and be grateful.

  12. Isn't it funny what you see in a picture. This one of yours reminded me of three angels lined up.

    By the way, I like the last one too. It reminds me of myself when I am moaning, I sound like I am howling at the moon.

    Love Renee
