What a magnificent sunrise. The blue colors of the sky contrast nicely with the bright white of the clouds. This is one of those “in the right spot at the right time” type of pictures.

Five minutes sooner or 5 minutes later and this display in the morning sky would not be this spectacular. A fine example of mother nature and her colorful palette at work. Can you see the thin white streak towards the upper right of the picture? Look close because it is very faint. Try clicking on the picture to enlarge it. It is the contrail of a plane. As I watched, the contrail went from right to left. Orlando International Airport is to the right. This must be a planeload of people returning home after a weeks vacation at Disney World. Not only do they have their clothes packed in their suitcases but lots of souvenirs from Tinker Bell’s toy shop in Magic Kingdom as well. And maybe even a pirates hat and a rubber cutlass from the gift shop at Pirates of the Caribbean. You know, once you have visited Disney you keep coming back. Such a truly magical place where all your cares just disappear. Maybe, just maybe, some day the contrail of the plane will be going from left to right bringing you to the Orlando airport for your own magical adventure at Disney. And no, I am not selling tickets or vacation packets for Disney, just a big fan of Disney. Take care and have a fun filled magical day wherever you may be. Lew
