Contrail with colour

Contrail with colour

I deliberated this morning over whether to bring the PlayBook or the Fuji camera. Turns out it’s good I opted for the former.

I saw this contrail far to the southeast of where I stood this morning and zoomed in on it. If you look closely at the contrail you can see colours refracting out. Further, the tendrils below are (I think) heavier ice crystals precipitating out. A very pretty and different view of a very common sight in North American skies.
