Beautiful departure of the 'Birthday girl' in LAX airport. Look at the humid white air effect on the top side of the wing and within the engine intake.

5 stars! Beautiful shot!
That "humid white air effect" is called fogging by the way ;) It happens when air is accelerated. Given that no warmth is transfered, it will lose pressure and temperature, thus losing the ability to carry water and producing fog. Only when the air is humid enough though.
