SKYWATCH FRIDAY - Over the Rainbow



There's nothing like a trip in an airplane to renew your wonder at the infinite sky. I secured a window seat both ways to view the other side of the universe. At sunset my mind played tricks on me as I kept seeing Earthly views - when in fact it was contained in the heavens. An eruption of clouds out of clouds that resembled mountains . A flat floor of dark clouds that looked like land. Blueness in the space below me replicated the sea.

Hi,

That's great luminosity in the top photo that softens the colors to a pastel. It would be great to see these skies and colors in a plane!

Happy Sky Watch Friday to you...
Great views from way up there, but getting on an aeroplane these days makes me nervous -- I avoid it like the plague...

these are lovely, and you are so right, they do form strangely misleading impressions of alternative landscapes. A nice different Skywatch.
