Today I got up well before the sun and hurried down to one of my favorite sunrise viewing spots. The morning sky was clear and crisp; a rainbow wash of color already signaling the coming dawn. When I arrived at the shore however, and could finally see all the way down to the horizon, I was disgusted to discover that my perfect sunrise would be spoiled by a mess of criss-crossing contrails clustered right above the spot the sun would make its first appearance.

I tried taking a few shots zoomed in far enough to eliminate the disruptive white lines; relishing the gleam of the water as it reflected the slowly brightening sky...

...but finally gave up and decided I would instead make lemonade from lemons. I tried to highlight the contrails' geometry and incorporate it into the form of my photos. I guess it worked out ok...
