Vapour Trails

Listening to: Scream in Blue - Midnight Oil Live (1992). One of the best live albums you've probably never heard of. Collected from various gigs across the bands career to that point and an excellent introduction to the body of work. Also notable for not having any mistakes corrected in post production, leaving the occasional bum note and pops and squeaks of dropped mikes to add to the feel.

I headed out to the airport the other day to practice a couple of things with my camera. It was a wet cold southerly, good for generating some nice condensation streamer shots:

Meanwhile, if you add a bit more energy and humidity, you'll get vapour ectoplasm that looks like this (link). Some of the cooler shots of their kind I have seen.
