Sunset, 1/30/11

I’m not generally a fan of contrails in my sunset pictures, but tonight I think they worked quite well.

There’s an Iranian artist whose name escapes me at the moment–my sister bought one of her pieces–who paints abstracts that look rather like this.

That’s gorgeous. You look first at the bright places, but the blue of the sky is the most beautiful color to me.

Also, John, do you post these as they come off the camera, completely-un-mucked-with?

You must be in a sweet spot for contrails, just close enough to the proper number of major airports and Air Force Bases without being too close. We should call this an atmospheric tribute to the Wright Brothers.

that top contrail, going from the 2 o’clock to 8 o’clock position, looks like the 3:50 flight from Toronto to Dallas. Looks like a 747, and looks like his number 3 engine is running a little hot. I’ll send the mechanic an email.

I can’t look at contrails anymore without thinking about my inner conflict over liking the Smashing Pumpkins and Billy Corgan being a conspiracy chemtrail nutburger.
