That crazy in flight video has got me longing to hop on a plane right now, but in the meantime, I can appease my yearning to take to the skies with a few sky-centric photos. I can’t think of a better place to start than with this morning’s dramatic purple and orange dawn over the east coast of Ireland.
A massive thunderstorm brewing over Jamaica Bay – just after I took this photo there was a blinding bolt of lightning and a torrential downpour. I was like a drowned rat, but luckily managed to keep my camera dry.
Sitting on a Manhattan rooftop waiting for 4th of July fireworks, watching the sun go down over the Hudson River. The fireworks were fun but that pink peach purple streaked sky was a hard act to follow.
Last but not least, blue skies mirrored in Bonneville Salt Flats which was flooded when I took this photo. It was one of the most dizzyingly beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.
