Head in the Clouds


Above the Sierra Nevada

One of the things I enjoy about flying is staring out the window to watch the clouds go by, and I always try to get a window seat. When I look around to see if anyone else is entranced by the view out the window, it seems the only other cloud-appreciators are small children. I do confess a childlike sense of awe at being privileged to fly above the clouds, a place people once considered the exclusive domain of the gods. 

The clouds in the image above were boiling up over the Sierra Nevada when I returned to San Francisco the other day. Below, Mt. Diablo stands in relief on a hazy, corduroy landscape.
