The Day in Photos: Up, Up and Away! #365Photoproject

Living close to an airport like Charlotte Douglas International can sometimes have its perk. This is true especially if you love plane-watching, or just want to see cool displays of airplanes ascending high up in the sky and leaving contrails in their wake.

What are Contrails?
Or vapor trails are long thin artificial clouds that sometimes form behind aircraftExhaust contrails usually occur above 8,000 m (26,000 ft), and only if the temperature there is below −40 °C(−40 °F). - Wikipedia

As the occurrence of contrails suggests, this plane was pretty high up in the sky and looked really small but thanks to a 300 MM zoom lens on landscape setting, a clear sky and cold weather, this baby is brought closer for the naked eye to enjoy.

And I say, Up, up and away!

365 days in photos is a photo project in my attempt to capture life, the world around it, and its essence each day through photos. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. And it lasts longer.
