I recently shared a few images from a window seat on the airplane, and I have a few more images to share in response to this week’s photo challenge.  

The first image of clouds over a mountain range is one of my favorites:

Clouds Over Mountains

I like the way you can see the light above the clouds and the shadows that are cast on the ground.

We were leaving some mountains behind as the plane headed into some clouds for the next image:

Into the Clouds

Heading into the clouds I remember thinking to myself that these views always help me put things in perspective. The scale of the earth, let alone the universe, makes any trouble I’m having seem so small – at least until we land!

Finally, here’s an  image of snow-covered land with a city and roads visible:

Human Infrastructure

It’s interesting to see how the human infrastructure carves into the earth.

And so, From Above, the scale of the earth and our universe is easier to see, and a different view of the impact our human infrastructure has upon the earth, providing insight into two topics that entire lives are spent exploring.

As mentioned previously, I spent a lot of time in airports and on planes this week. Throughout the week, I was amazed at the number of people that are involved in making it possible for us to travel via air.  Below is a compilation of several images that I took with my camera phone:

Workers

Thanks to all who make traveling possible, and thanks for another great challenge from A Word in your Ear!
