This is the reason I joined the Air Force.  I couldn’t stop looking at the sky.  Skygazing!

      Thanks, Linda. These days I like being grounded. Same place same time is possible at the lake since there are uninterrupted views to the north, east and west. Some of the flights may be from Canadian air traffic since Toronto is just on the other side of the lake.

    I love airplanes, but I’m not generally not a fan of contrails in my photos. They do make for interesting subject matter, though. The overall look and feel of these photos is very nice.

      Thanks, Tom. I have, on one occasion, cloned out a contrail in a photo because I thought the contrail was not appropriate. But there are few places that human presence are not apparent and I wanted to tap into that.

    I don’t fully understand the science behind contrails, but they can really something special to a sky. On the other hand, sometimes they can also ruin a shot. In these instances they are all part of the picture.

      Thanks, Andy. Yes, contrails can ruin a photo easily. So I decided to try to use them as the main focal point instead of avoiding them. I like the way that they integrate with the rest of a natural sky.
