During Sunlit Sunday times I find myself looking at the way the sun shines on things in the house, the sky, both in the daytime and early evening when it is dusk, the patterns that are made as the sun shines through things.
Of course these things happen all year round and I do notice them, but for the first three months of the year when Karen hosts Sunlit Sunday I make a special effort to note and record them.
So when I saw this amazing sight out of the window this week, purely by chance, I had to quickly record it for you. It was very quick too, because as you will see, it involved a plane and I even managed to switch from my regular lens on the camera to my zoom lens.
The whole experience didn't last for more than a couple of moments, and although it was fleeting, it was beautiful and well worth recording and I hope you will think that it was worth sharing with you all.
This is what I saw!
The sky was turning a beautiful red colour and the contrail from this plane flying overhead was turning a bright red colour too. I have never seen this before!
I quickly switched to my zoom lens so that I could get a closer shot of it.
Isn't the contrail just the most amazing colour indeed!
You can see from this shot above where I switched back to the normal lens just how far away the plane was - it is at the end of the almost vertical streak on the right of centre.
The sun started to fall lower in the sky, making everything close up turn black of course.
But that beautiful redness remained as the darkness started to come.
I will keep looking for sunny moments all week! I hope that you have some sunshine in your life this week, literally, or figuratively.
