On this morning’s 6.8K (4.2 mile) power walk, I looked up to see this jet contrail illuminated by the sunrise.

I walked until I could frame its lacy trail between some trees.

Because I wanted to catch some of the sunrise as well, the composition of the shot isn’t the greatest. Even so, I’m happy I captured the light the way I had hoped to.

The sight made me wonder when we’ll be able to fly again and feel comfortable with that mode of travel. Time will tell.
