Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Illuminated

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week, is “Illuminated.” On our way back south from New Jersey, I just had to snap this amazing illuminated sky through the car window. It looked like an upside down river that was rushing towards us.Β  I only had my iPhone handy, but I think it turned out rather well.

  2. I liked your description of an upside down river rushing towards your car. Lovely in photograph but scary and eerie in reality! Wow! Your phone c as poured this beautifully, too.

      • You are welcome (I think it may be safe to breathe a sigh of relief!) and thank you for your comment about new baby. It was a magical day with all sorts of natural forces going on. I didn’t mention the rainbow in poem. Since son saw it and mentioned after I was through with pushing that button to publish. πŸ™‚

      • It probably does…once upon a time in another life I knew a little about cloud types……our climatic systems are so different from yours and I’ve never seen streaming strato-cumulus like this in Australia. (It may not even be s-c ….it’s hard to judge it’s altitude from the photograph.

  3. Looks like we should be spotting Dorothy and Toto in that sky Sylvia πŸ™‚
    What a moment to capture … * jealous πŸ˜‰

  4. Lovely – the sky goes on forever….
