Nice catch on the smoke in the background, and very nice condensation trails coming off the wings.

A great pic and an awesome illustration of how winglets work! They basically move the formation of the tip vortex from the wingtip to the tip of the winglet. And therefore the entire wing now can create lift instead of the last bit of lift being lost in the wingtip vortex. Winglets also provide a little forward thrust! They work like the sail on a sailboat! In large jets they can add upto 250nm in range!

To the UK visitor. If designers were concerned about lift being lost from the last bit of the wing they would make the wing longer to compensate. And winglets do not create any forward thrust (a sail on a sailboat?!). Forward thrust ONLY comes from the engines. The technology behind the winglets is that they reduce the size (energy) of the vortices, which is a form of induced drag. It is energy provided by the engines and that would otherwise be wasted, hence the improved range with winglets.
