Tag Archives: clouds

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.

This week I’ve been traveling on business and haven’t seen much of the outside except for when I’ve been lucky enough to grab a window seat on the plane.  Here is a shot of the plane from my seat as we fly into the sun:

And here is a shot of some plots of land through the clouds:

Fields through clouds

And to close this challenge, here’s a shot of a sunset from above the clouds:

Sunset above the clouds

All of these shots are taken with my phone through plane windows, smudges and all!

The world is a fascinating place, and being up in and above the clouds can be pretty cool – as long as the air is smooth…

Have a great day!
