    I haven't been down to the river at sunset in quite some time. I had to be out-and-about around that time so I took the camera along. 5N/CV21 @ f/8. The closeup is the SMC Tak55/1.8 @ f/8. Interesting how over the course of 11 minutes the two clouds joined into one.

    Great shots Bimjo!

    Do you know what those white streaks are?

    The jet vapour trails I've seen in the past don't look like that/those (there's several). :confused:

    Thank you, this week is the first time we've seen blue sky for nearly 3 weeks. Pacific storms rolling in heavy and frequent so far this fall.

    Thanks! Yes, those are jet trails. The temp/wind has to be right for them to just disappear like that instead of slowly diffusing.

    It's hard to shoot a blue sky around here without getting them in the pic. Because we are between Salt Lake/Denver and Seattle we get all that traffic. Because we're between Spokane and Portland we get all that traffic. Some days the sky looks like a roadmap. ;^)

    Thanks guys.

    This is the Columbia river, which runs through the Tri-cities, WA. These were shot from the Pasco side of the river looking toward Kennewick.
