Amazing to see what Mother Nature can create in the sky all at one time. Here a spreading contrail rising up through altocumulus puffs is illuminated by the sun and shimmering like ice. Gone in minutes … but remembered.
They’re really not clouds but contrails and are such fun to see! If you look close you’ll spot the airplane flying below … another contrail in the making. It’ll be up to the wind and temp to determine what shape it takes.
Given the stratus skies overhead and the darkening storm of protest in DC, I find solace in this favorite pic taken a few winters ago. From my Amtrak seat on a return to PDX from Seattle, the Puget Sound vistas afforded brilliant sky views. A promise of tomorrow and a reminder that despite the starkness…
It’s easy to see why the immenseness of the sky has been an inspiration for artists and poets, inventors and explorers since the first human looked up. (Evening sky in Seattle.)
I never tire of the endless variations of sky and sea.
They come like waves of ribbons across the sky. Rows of wings. Shape-shifting in flight. Forming first circles then lines then arches. A mesmerizing choreography only they can do. Instinctive. Fleeting. Inspiring.
