One boat, two old barns, and three white lines in the sky! This is a shot from the "Garden of England" - otherwise known as the county of Kent. I saw the three trails and wanted to try and catch them entering the shot from the top right corner. I was lucky in that the sun was directly to my right and so I was able to get maximum effect from my circular polariser in order to darken the sky and bring out the blue on this hot afternoon at the begining of summer.
Hope you like it! Casper

Very good shot, specially the formation of the clouds over the blue sky. The greenery of the foreground really suited against the blue and white bg. Good composition and good POV.

Hi Casper, what a weekend that was! Hotter than Ibiza! Well constructed composition - and to get the vapour trails all running parallel was a real bonus. The little dinghy provides a really good anchor for the shot. All the colours are nicely saturated too - very natural.
I'm doing a lot of cycling at the moment as I've foolishly enter the London to Brighton bike ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation - must be crazy!
All the best, Roberto

Beautiful 1,2,and 3. Yes, I'm enjoying it much. It's an excellently composed image with all elements perfectly placed, one can wonder around the image as if arived by the boat and then taking a walk around this peaceful old barns and having a picnic, soaking up the sun. Technically all is great. Good sharpness, color and light perfectly balance with just enough contrast and saturation. Such a beautiful weather that is too. I was recently in london and around, weather was not this nice I regret to say. Enjoy, my friend.

Hello Casper. Vapor trail of airplanes in the sky. Nothing spectacular. And this phenomenon is interessat nevertheless. Because before there were airplanes, only normal clouds were to be seen in the sky. Today an airplane flies past after the other one the sky. Any people fly somewhere. Actually it is this procedure, which moves and fascinates us internally. The photo pleases me very well. Best regards, Wolfgang.

You obviously have a very good eye,
the small rowing boat belonging to ratty, the barns from the darling buds of May, willows & a fly past by the air force-all perfect!
It could only be England-& so well captured.

Good idea to have chosen these three tracks of plane as pretext to drag us in this magnificent and peaceful British countryside! The photo very pleasantly consists with a beautiful balance, and I have the desire to spend the day in this garden with a nice book.
Congratulations also for your very beautiful gallery.
