Jet Airliner In The Sky

The story behind the image

Story? What story? A jet airliner cruises over your house. On a sunny day with just light clouds. Leaving a big white trail. And I have the camera right next to me. So I do one of those shots I always wanted to do but for some strange reason haven’t done until that day.

I love the way that trail ends up exactly in the lower left corner, and I love its angle. I love the saturated blue sky. I love this image.
