Hi Marian, when I saw this scene I was struck by the contrast of the rigid man-made horizontal and vertical lines against the soft diagonals of vapor trails and random shapes of clouds and tree. Although I could see the picture in my head in B&W, I wasn't sure if there was enough contrast twixt clouds and sky, but liked the pastel yellow on blue.

With a bit of manipulation I've created the contrast to make a reasonable image. Best regards to you, and all, Si.

PS; One for Valery. A man walks into a bar, says "ouch!", it was an iron bar.

I knew Marian would like this one and I see from her comment that she does like it.
So do I, Si.
