Oh, that is a LOT of contrails! We've had some like that here in Seattle and I do find them fascinating! Terrific captures for the day! Enjoy your weekend!

Such pretty blue skies and the contrails are a nice emphasis.

The last sky is really unusual, with the contrails going perfectly parallel! Did you go secretly in your private jet to make these?!

EG Wow said...

You had quite a few jets flying over!

VioletSky said...

this is highly unusual, since this spot not very close to the airport!

Irene said...

Well spotted ... looks nice on the blue sky!

Carola said...

Unique contrails. Great composition on the second shot.

Jane said...

That is a lot of trails! We live on a busy flight path but I've not seen quite that many in the sky. Perfectly captured too.

...so that it what they are called...contrails...interesting. I have always called them “jet streams.” Now I will know what the proper terminology is. Lovely. Obviously, there were lots of planes flying about this day. Genie

A beautiful blue sky showcasing those contrails.

Nora said...

Great shots. I don't even know what they are called in Dutch. What a beautiful sky you had.

Like a maze up there. Great captures.

You do have a lot of traffic overhead. I would not want my washing hanging under those traffic lanes.

Beautiful capture.

Know that area very well!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

well I've never seen them so almost-perfectly parallel to each other like this. it's as if jets flew over at the same time, in formation! I really like how you've composed this photo - with the vast sky and the city looking small in contrast. great job, and gorgeous skies. happy SWF!
