May Theme Day - Shadows


Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

This photo was taken from a plane as we were about to descend into the clouds. I was tracking the shadow as it appeared on the clouds but it seemed destined to remain too small right up until we entered the clouds. With a lot of crud on the window it is not the cleanest photo, but the sun's reflection makes it a little more interesting

This is really nice! I like the texture and color a lot, even though it might technically be crud! This is memorable.

I envy you this one! I always ask for a window seat to take photos, but haven't been as lucky.

Great shot!

The sun's reflection looks like the plane is traveling at warp speed and creating a sound wave

No no ... do not worry. This is a fabulous response to the theme. The shadow the sun, the grime. All quite wonderful, Simon.

I like it. It's almost spooky!

So did you make it OK if the plane only had one engine?
