Sky Watch Friday From Above...


After a month off I am back to Sky Watch Friday. Today's photograph was taken out the window of a 757 over 30,000 feet above the Pacific ocean close to the island of O'ahu. I really thought this trip would yield many good sunrise and sunset photos but I had trouble being up early enough for sunrise photos and found that most of the time I was on the wrong side of the islands for sunset photos. While on the ship only one good sunset photo opportunity occured and I had to watch it out a window from the dinner table. Oh well, I still captured a few photos I can use for upcoming sky watch Fridays. Be shure and click the link to enjoy other great sky watch photos from all over the world.

Remember sunrises in the east and sets in the west. Do we have to get you a compass for your next vacation? Nice shot out the window of the airplane. Always liked to see the clouds and sun like that.

Great photo Bradley. I think sunrises and sunsets are the most incredible sight one can behold.

Your Strip In Honolulu post came up in my reader today but when I arrived here it's nowhere to be found. I'll say this it's a great picture. I'm glad you and your family had such a nice time. I think I would be more of a wildlife kinda person too. Hope all is well. Have a great day.

That's excellent! The best view of clouds is always from above I think. Great shot!
