"Fiery" vapour trail


Late this afternoon nearing sunset, I spotted this glowing orange aircraft vapour trail; not the usual white against a blue sky.

Great photo. I really enjoy seeing the photos and stories that you post. My husband and I live in Denver, Colorado and he is originally from Adelaide. So it makes us feel like we're peeking in every day. Adelaide is beautiful. We've been married for over 20 years from a chance meeting at Venice Beach, CA. His family is still there in Adelaide and we miss them. Thank you for the photos...

Must have been a bright sun somewhere close to change the colors. Nice shot. At first I thought it could be a "rod" but then it is obviously not.

Lisa - you're welcome. Thanks for the feedback.

Abraham - yes, the sun had not set and the sunset sky was vivid.
