ABC Wednesday - Xenon

X is for Xenon.............

contrails stretching across a blue sky with white clouds

Okay - I know I am stretching it this week, but X's are hard to come by.

I had resorted to looking through the dictionary under X - all one and a half pages of them - and was getting more disgusted with each passing word.

I finally started reading the definitions of the words - perhaps I could find something that way.

And there it was - xenon.

The definition - a gaseous element of the atmosphere.

I have an atmosphere photo - the sky is certainly our atmosphere comprised of many gases, and I am sure the xenon is somewhere in there if I look really hard...............

Thank goodness for me that gases are invisible.

I actually shot this image as a stock photo showing the contrails from passing planes, and it has been a pretty good seller.


  1. X indeed has presented a challenge....which we all embraced!

  2. Congratulations on finding that elusive X...
    Hope you are enjoying a fine x day.

  3. I think this is a great choice. We so often do not think beyond beautiful blue and clouds; now we can also think xenon!

  4. Very beautiful picture! My sister loves pictures of clouds, and would love that one :)

  5. splendid x indeed. I admire your commitment in this.


  6. Now that's really clever! Very well done indeed.
    By the way, I like the sky photo too!

  7. Higly original - if you had taken a picture of the new type of car lamps (those with bluish light) you would even have got a picture of it. The bulbs are filled with xenon gas.

  8. I had trouble with X as well, and I dont have much time... preparing for another trip next week. So I cheated a little, hehe. Anyway, what you've found is a good one, I think!

  9. Neat shot Kathy, X marks the spot, well done !!

  10. X-cellent shot and choice of word *smiles*.

  11. No doubt this should be a good seller, nice.

  12. x is challange, you did it, it is stretch, lol, great shot though, anna :)
