Skywatch # 79 - I'm on a plane, I can't complain


And then I'm done, and I can go home


Actually I have no idea what number skywatch I'm posting but the random number spoke to me so it shall be. You'll know my musical tastes my now so I make no apologies for the outrageous use of part lyric and tweaking of a particular word too explain the image.


Simply Nirvana to be amongst the clouds looking down on the island, though not Ramsey. That would be the North. This would be the Southern bit of these here parts. Well the airport is South of the island so that'd be where we were heading. Unless you count Jurby airfield. Let me see, trip to the prison, thanks but no thanks. This was also the I'm sooooooooooooooooooo bored on the short journey back from England, oh why can't I be back in the South of France let's play with the point and shoot camera for a bit shot. Here's a tip for you though. Don't start being creative and doing that whole " hello I'm taking part in the 100 strangers photo thing on flickr.... may I take your picture" for some reason means translates as I'm a terrorist. Not like I used the word shoot, or (flash) gun. Not like any of that last bit was true either, just the image above and a glimpse of the island as seem from the sky.


Been a while since I skywatched so I'll have to check in later but here's the link back to the Skywatch team http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Lovely soft, cuddly clouds. I love being able to look down on clouds. In fact I love the whole bird's eye view idea.

Babooshka said...

Sylvia just thought something a little different to get me back in the skywatch saddle. Jabblog, love being up there so surreal and you really do see just how small the island is.

D said...

Which bit of the island would that be then? PRETTY Awesome.

Martha Z said...

Babooshka said...

The south D, like were the airport is. Martha cheers, long overdue and surprising how easy to slip back into and how welcoming everyone is. Steffi it was handy having the point and shoot with me instead of the big camera. Love to do it again.

a long time ago I used to think that taking my camera on the plane and shooting out the window was just too juvenile--too childish.

But then...

I flew from Kansas City one early December morning--before sunrise--to Las Vegas.

And I've never been the same about it.

I got fantastic shots. In fact, one turned out so well, right at sunrise, some 20 or 30 thousand feet up that I use it for the header of my blog: http://moravings.blogspot.com/.

You might check it out.

There's lots more, too.

Thanks for sharing.

That's what I call a breathtaking shot.
I've never been that high, but I allways like photo's taken above the clouds.
Enjoy your weekend!

Hildred and Charles said...

Beautiful shot, - you could almost jump out and bounce on the clouds.

Leslie said...

Well, you gave us a skywatch with a bird's-eye view! These clouds look just like a down comforter.

Thank goodness you were in a plane at the time.

Mojo said...

Ahhh. Been a long while since I saw this view firsthand. But just where have you been anyway? There's been SO much going on while you were away... You wouldn't believe. Hell, I scarcely believe.

NatureFootstep said...

I like that view, especially when you are heading out. :)

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

You were one of our first visitors when we started out blog two years ago. So glad you are back! Ramsey needs to be represented on the blogosphere and what better person to do it than YOU!!!

Max-e said...

Hi Babooshka, welcome back to Skywatch with a sky high picture.
I like the view from up there but unfortunately I am also always conscious of the distance to the ground, so I am always grateful when we touch down.

Dave said...

beautiful clouds formation!

ladyfi said...

It's always such a buzz to fly up above the clouds and see them from the other side.

eileeninmd said...
