Thematic Photographic: Aviation

Here's another photo that I didn't get round to posting for Carmi's previous theme "cloudy". This week his theme is Aviation and I realised that I could sneak it in here instead.

One of the totally unexpected things that struck me when we visited the UK was that wherever we went, there were jet trails all over the sky. Here, at the edge of the world, we see occasional jet trails, but most of the time the sky is free of them. There, on blue sky days, whenever we looked up, there they were.



This photo was taken in a small town in Derbyshire called Matlock. While my husband visited the local records office in a search for his ancestors, I took a walk round the town and added to my holiday photo collection. It almost looks as if the jet trails are stitching the clouds together.

LOL! I think it's BOTH! I would certainly put jet trails into the aviation category!

your right about the UK, I feel fortunate I live 50 miles from Gatwick airport and hardly see any trails or planes.

Love that you chose an aspect of Aviation that others hadn't thought of. Nice shot...so obvious yet so subtle.

I participated in TP this week too. Please stop by!

That is a great snap.
And I know Matlock well.
Did you hear about the well dressing in Derbyshire?
