Sunset with no vapour trails

I took this photo the other night near to where I live. The most unusual thing about it is there are absolutely no vapour trails from planes. British air space has been completely closed for days due to the eruption of a volcano in Iceland. The dust cloud from it headed straight for the UK. No planes have been allowed to take off or land in the whole of the country. Its caused chaos for a lot of people but on the upside there’s been a strange eerie silence and no sign of a single plane in the sky for days. I quite like it. The restrictions have been eased now so the planes with gradually start to appear again but it was a weird experience and one that apparently has never before happened in the history of Britain!
