Trails over Livingston.

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 17 September 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Many crisscrossed trails this day, but I zeroed in on the one with the surprise prism. Once there was a very clear trail above when I was sitting in the hot springs. It had a unique continuous Lacey pattern. I just stared and wondered.

Thank you for your visit and comments. I so enjoy hearing from you and seeing the world through your lens.

Super interesting shot. I love how we can see the wind effects on the contrail.

@Rick: It may be a chemtrail. I tend to lean toward the idea of seeing only the beauty in things. It erks the bad guys. :-}

@Don: Many call them chemtrails but I found this trail a lovely image, whatever it's makeup. Thanks for the visit Don.

Wonderful prism you captured in the contrail. It's amazing what we can see if we simply take the time to just look up every once in a while, eh?

@Jason Politte: Yes, skywatching is big here. It pulls us outside many times, to show off it's stuff.

@myky: So agree. The sky is huge and constantly shifting with wonderful shows up here. I am one who has kink in neck from watching it.

Fantastic image ... beauty is all around us, isn't it!

@Judy aka L@dybug: Yes beauty all around, and especially in the skys up here. Went for a walk and shoot yesterday, and the more I looked the more beauty I saw even at my feet. Or on a rocky wall. Subtle color comps everywhere, and especially now that Fall is beginning. The reds and yellows are starting to accent the green, and our fields are full of long golden shimmering grass blowing in the wind. You'll see results of my humble attempts to try and capture it all in my posts next week or so. Thanks for your visits and fun comments.

Wow, how cool is that, Joyce?! Your very own little "rainbow".

@B. Thomas: I know it is the effect of the sun right above the frame of the photo, but otherwise magic. My story and sticking to it. Interesting how such a common sight focused on can be so pretty.

Very cool capture, Joyce.
