Our World Tuesday

It's time once again for Our World Tuesday, a weekly meme that encourages bloggers to share images of their world. It's a great way to get a glimpse of life through the eyes of others! You can find out more about it here. Even if you don't participate, I encourage you to take a look at the intriguing photos that bloggers from around the world share each week.

I took these photos of an airplane's contrail just after sunrise one morning a couple of months ago. I always enjoy seeing the patterns these streaks of water vapor leave in the sky. What I like most about these photos, though, is the softness of the colors. It was a beautiful morning.
 



 
Wishing you all a lovely Tuesday. ☺

  6. nicely done. I like the way you have included the tree branches - they really add to the shot. I haven't seen pink vapour before!
    Have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by my blog today.

    1. Thanks! My favorite thing to photograph is trees. I liked the way the vapor looked like it was winding between the branches. :)

  7. i have a challenge for you...
    how do you feel, looking at all these trees?
    your feelings could be poetry (no rhyme necessary) and together with your pictures, you could compile a lovely book!

    and you could travel across the country for research and more tree-spiration!

    1. I love your challenge idea! I often write poems inspired by the trees in my photographs. What a cool idea to compile them into a book. :)

      The travel sounds pretty fun, too! Thanks, Tara. Have a great day. ☺

  18. How very cool. Sitting on my deck one day, I counted about 6 of those contrails in the sky at one time. I had to wonder just how many miles apart those planes were when it looked rather like a traffic jam.

  24. I have always loved contrails until three hours ago, when I read on Earth Observatory that they are bad for the environment. I don't know why that had never occurred to me before.

    1. It hadn't occurred to me either. Thanks for pointing that out.

  25. Great catches! You have lovely skies...the contrails do look like punctuation marks!
