Flight Lines

I was up in the North-East of Calgary a couple of days ago during the tail-end of  the cold snap.  At one of my stops, I realized I was in the flight path of planes landing at the Calgary International Airport.  I found an interesting set of lines to frame a plane and then waited in the frigid air for 10 minutes for another plane to pass overhead.  I like the result of this simple composition.

Here is the alley sans plane.
