Monday Photo Shoot: Look! Up in the Sky!

I've considered three different ideas for this week's Monday Photo Shoot, and took one or more photos for all of them. The one we're going with is similar to a couple of old Scalzi MPS topics, but not quite the same. I'll explain about that in a moment:

New Monday Photo Shoot #4: Show us something in the sky. It can be clouds or colors or birds or planes or planets or flying pigs - anything at all, really, just as long as it's visually interesting.

John Scalzi's very first Monday Photo Shoot was Sunsets, and he also did Blue Skies, Cloudy Days and In Flight. None of those concepts are off limits for this one, but if you can find something that doesn't fit these categories, so much the better.

Here's mine:


When I set out for Subway this afternoon, I noticed these three jet trails, heading off in three different directions. It struck me as odd that the third one was much thinner than the others, and turned at that big angle. There was no sign of any actual jets, although I live near Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

Heading home with John's salad, I saw many more bands of white crisscrossing the sky. It was hard to tell what was man made and what was actually clouds.

Your turn! Let's see something that's floating, flying, or hanging in, coloring, churning, filling, or piercing a sky near you! Post the picture to your blog, and come back here and leave a link in comments. I'll post the results on Sunday night the 27th.

Neat shots Karen. It really is hard to tell what's clouds from plane trails.
I'm hoping to play along again this week :-)
