As I was walking past this tree, I happened to look up to the sky just in time to see a jet contrail in a great position for a photo. It was formed alongside the beams of the morning sun. The sun was peeking through the top of the tree. With the glowing tree leaves adding to the scene, everything seemed to work together.

In order to more closely depict what I saw, I did a couple of tiny tweaks with white balance and curves in Snapseed.

“There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.”

Victor Hugo
