Beautiful, Harry. Nice to be up at time in a morning when the sky is like that.

Lizzie, that's how I felt when I lived in Canada some years ago. I'll send you a handkerchief for Christmas.!!

Nice colourful early morning sky. Harry you'll wither and die if you stand there too long,lol. There is a big belief especially in America that these are chemtrails, ie, high altitude spraying of weedkiller etc, some people living under recognised flightpaths are convinced that if their outdoor tomatoes etc have a bad year chemtrails are to blame, but that's America, nuff said.

Oh hear we go again, blaming American's for everything that's 'a big belief'; what nonsense. There is a HELL of alot of evidence for chemtrails by very serious and professional people not just in America but elsewhere. Noone is really certain what the purpose of the aerosol spraying (its proper name) is for, but one thing's for certain they aint normal contrail vapour from planes. I'm not saying this particular photo shows chemtrails, but there are lots and lots of sky images that show trails which do not disappear quickly, which then spread out into clouds and unusual criss-cross patterns, completing blanketing the sky. It's not conspiracy theory. Weedkiller? I think you'll find it's more to do with spraying metals like barium and aluminium, and it's got nothing to do with bad tomato growth.

thems not contrails its what was left from UFO'S that paid a visit to us early hours of the morning

Al,i didn,t say it was just America or Americans, i also said weedkiller etc and also said tomatoes etc in otherwords not meaning those items per se. I HAVE read articles about Americans blaming chemtrails for ruining their crops of whatever they have been growing.Calm down!

Lovely pic.Harry! Currently having a bout of insomnia; I've not been up early recently-(barring, of course those nights when totally bereft of sleep, when I'm not in the mood for seeing these beautiful moments!)-sooo,this is a beautiful reminder! Fred, a nice sentiment,but do they actually make handkerchieves any more?? (lol,of course!)
