Aerial Landscapes

(Written 09.03.08, but somehow not posted until 09.04.08)
Flying home from a quick visit to see my dad... These are shots I took on my flight out -- of fields as we approached Sacramento. The photo doesn't do the very-graphic landscape justice -- the shades of green were beautiful. Now, as I fly back to Denver, I see the first white of snow on the mountains. It looks like powdered sugar just dusted over the highest peaks. When I look down from a plane window I often think of Georgia O'Keefe's cloud paintings from above, inspired by one of her first airplane flights. No clouds this evening, but spectacular scenery. I always love the window seat!
