Skywatch from above


When I fly I usually prefer an aisle seat. My short attention span (and economy seat) means I pop up and down occasionally in longer flights.  This one however, was a short flight into Philly, so I sat by the window.  This perfectly clear view was somewhere over Pennsylvania. 

I once read a book where the main character was from Montana and wanted to know what Pennsylvania looked like.  The other character described it in one word, green.  I thought that was a really good description.  

Beautiful works too.


More great skies:

Happy Friday!

I, too, love a window seat so I can enjoy beautiful views such as this. It's good to see green, too, with a chance of snow here again tomorrow...

This brings back memories of my airplane views from our ski trip! It's fascinating to look closely at all the detail. I'm surprised it is so green already.

Beautiful shot, How quite and peaceful it looks from the top but seldom that's the reality :-)
