WOW! what a shot!! you got this one just right!!
HOW did this happen? wow... almost spooky...a previous flight's footprint is my guess! almost as if the previous flight cut through the clouds and left "its prints" there! Great photo Steve A huge like for sure!
Hope you are well my friend...
kindest wishes with hugs ~~Sarah~~ X
Hello dear Sarah this was taken in the yard of an interesting church i visited today and will try to look up the cause of this strange sight when time but you may well be right :))
best wishes as always ~ steve X
Trying to answer Sarah O's question: I suspect that the dark lines are the shadow of the bright exhaust plume cast on a thin layer of clouds somewhat below the cruising altitude of the jet plane. But having stepped just a few meters sideways you couldn't have seen the plume and the shadow so perfectly being in line as in this remakable shot. I think you must consider yourself very lucky since the odds for getting this unusual perspective may be one in a million. Well, that's what makes a good photographer, congratulations! Regards Michael
Hi Michael well you helped a little! :)) well actually, a lot! I simply could not understand this AT ALL:) ...Yes, Steve caught a "one-in-a million-shot" I would think. He should be quite proud of this catch! thanks and hello to you, Michael.
Michael Diegelmann thank you Michael you explanation is very much appreciated on this shot i had thought a shadow at first here as i could not see a reason for this Aircraft to follow another so close as to be following previous trails and that they seemed dark rather than the usual white plume .. the sun was high and almost behind me when i looked up at the church tower and saw this sight high above it .. i am pleased you find it interesting :))
Hello my dear Sarah i am pleased you think this a "one in a million" shot too and it was Lucky i was in the right spot at the right time :))
best wishes to you both ~ steve
