Sky Watch: Vapour Trails

Watching the sky today we seen the stripes of vapour trails left by high-flying jets.

Ashton lies under the path of aircraft travelling between London and North America, so there are frequent trails left across a clear blue winter's sky, such as this one on Wednesday. The photo was taken near the bowling greens in King George VI Playing Field, Ashton.

Sky Watch is the new Friday feature on this photo blog. It will link with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!

  1. A lovely, calm and peaceful scene.

  2. I love the farm scene under the sky.

  3. Very pretty shot! I love how it all comes together, and the aircraft trails just give it a nice decoration.

    My SWF photos are here and here. Hop on by if you have the time. Happy weekends.

  4. Beautiful scene with a beautiful blue sky. Happy SWF!

  5. The vapour trails look like delicate ribbons cutting through that brilliant blue sky.

  6. Nice addition to Sky Watch Friday!

  7. You can almost hear the "whoooosh".

  8. Love the lacy trees against the sky. Nice shot.
