A bit experimental and a bit arty, but I am suffering from two nights on the lash, so I needed something serene to look at.
From Wikipedia: \’Contrails are condensation trails (sometimes vapour trails): artificial cirrus clouds made by the exhaust of aircraft engines or wingtip vortices which precipitate a stream of tiny ice crystals in moist, frigid upper air. Contrary to appearances, they are not air pollution as such, though might be considered visual pollution.\’
Anyway, I was inspired by Jarrett Gorin\’s uber minimal contrail shot, so I did my own, in Hythe no less, not Goleta where they appear to have skies like this one all year round.
The following is taken from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds\’ website: \’The mute swan is a very large white waterbird. It has a long S-shaped neck, and an orange bill with black at the base of it.\’ Well, tell me something I don\’t know! Scary, but beautiful – I present to you a nice bit of Swanage.
