Cloud Nine *

.
Straight out of the camera, taken out the window of my dad's plane last summer. Don't they look like fluffy cotton?

Beautiful. But I see mushrooms. :)
That sounds so good, "my dad's plane."
Hey, wait, my dad had a plane too. But it was a World War II Liberator bomber that he was piloting. Shot down while bombing Ploesti oil fields. He was a POW for six months.
So yeah, I was thinking about American Veterans Day.

Totally unreal! Beautiful capture.

He's a private pilot - just for fun, not professionally, though we do have 4 generations of pilots in the family :).

If the mothership were made of cotton this is what it would look like. Amazing!

I can't say it any better than Mojo. :)
I thought it looked like a ship too.
Great shot Robin!

How do we know that what we are looking at is not cotton with a blue sky and a few real clouds behind it? People can do some very creative things with Photoshop.

So pretty! I love it.

Your dad has a plane? Where does he tie it down? Yes, I'm nosy. I used to live in New England and I used to know a few private pilots.

Light and Voices said...

I am happy. Oh so happy. Just seeing your Cloud Nine made my day.
Excellent job!

My daughter learned how to fly, but that makes only 2 generations. You have FOUR? Wow. You included?

Arija said...

So pretty, like buns rising in the oven.

Robin said...

Nope, not me I'm afraid. My grandfather flew with Billy Mitchell though back in the old leather helmet and goggles days :).

Shannon said...

Looks like it's not even real. I love cloud photos from the plane. I took a few of a thunderstorm mixed with sun a while back. Really cool!
