All images taken with aOlympus OM2, on Kodak Royal Gold 1000, w/fixed camera mount, from just west of Middletown, VA. (N. Shenandoah Valley near Winchester)
1. 08 Apr 0215 UT. Vivitar 90mm, F4.5, aprox 80 seconds. Note the kink in the tail. Believe this due to VERY thin cirrus in the way!

By the way, both of these lenses are zoom; 24-45 & 90-230.
