...the sunset was imminent as that plane headed NNW to heaven knows where.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

I love watching planes flying to wonderful and exciting destinations, this vapour trail lights up beautifully against the setting sun.

@kiwisa: Thank you, Kiwisa ... I liked the vapor trail too. ;D

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Beautiful composition with the tree and the line of the plane . Somptuous colors at sunset .

6 Jan 2013 9:35am

@Mhelene: Thanks so much ... I would be happy shooting nothing but sunsets & sunrises, but that might get a bit boring for the viewer! ;D

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Very nice indeed, wonder if it was domestic flight or international?

6 Jan 2013 10:41am

@Curly: Probably domestic, unless heading to Vancouver perhaps. ;D

@CElliottUK: It was high enough we didn't hear it ... ;D

A beautiful tree for the rising of the sun and your photo !

Mirjam from Kyiv, Ukraine

Beautiful light.

Slackwater - Don from Spokane, United States

A beautiful capture of the sunset and the contrail. Here the contrails always run east and west (Minneapolis - Seattle).

6 Jan 2013 4:20pm

@Slackwater - Don: Most of the ones we see are northbound ... or low in the sky pre-landing. ;D

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

Lovely sunset - the light and color are gorgeous.

6 Jan 2013 7:25pm

@Ruthiebear: Thank you, Ruthie. I captured the light; God provided the color!

Abena from Illinois, United States

That is absolutely gorgeous and serene... I believe it would be a beautiful peace and state of mind to just sit amidst all of that and just think or reflect. Lovely image! "Stick a geranium in your hat and be happy" I like the happiness of that! Sunday blessings to you!

6 Jan 2013 10:06pm

@Abena: This is probably my favorite time of day. Sometimes the 'afterglow' lasts nearly 30 minutes after the sun settles down/earth turns. Glad you liked the geranium quote! ;D

Carol from Leamington, Canada

Gorgeous.... I was looking at the sunset and wondering what kind of tree that could be... it makes a pretty silhouette. I like the verse too Judy, so true!

7 Jan 2013 12:06am

@Carol: It's a palm, Carol, with others in the distance. ;D

Just so long as the plane was not heading to heaven. ;-)) Gorgeous sunset. I'm hoping to see some lovely sunsets in a couple of weeks.
