As I recall, the sky looked kinda like this in the final scene. It’s lovely! Not least because it means this week is almost over. (Freshmen orientation – I’m getting too old for this!) Oh no – chemtrails! Get to the shelter!! Ahhhhhhhh! Gorgeous. Is that typical, or are you getting more overhead air traffic because of everyone routing around Chicago today? You could eliminate those unsightly chemtrails vapor trails with white vinegar, you know. See one of the many how-to videos at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aBljb5pTlU . (Ghod, the stupidity of these people…!) White vinegar? God I hope that’s a joke. Anyway the vapor trails are beautiful but I understand they contribute to global warming although there is great uncertainty over the amount. Maybe some artist with aviation connections and a lot of time on her hands called the gang together and suggested leaving contrails in a compositionally intriguing pattern in your sky, just to mess with your head. Naaaaaaa-aa-aa-h! Beautiful work, as always, Mr. S. I don’t usually get to take sunset pictures, except in the summer (as I live in Alaska, and work night shift, the sun is usually setting right around the time I get off work, which is nice). But, I took note of your post some while back about the tools you use to make these incredibly awesome photos, and since it’s getting to the time in my state where I’ll be getting up just as the sun is rising, I think I’ll take your knowledge and tools and adapt them to sunrise photos. Because, you know….why not? It looks almost like some kind of a glass sculpture. Lovely. Feathers in the sky! I always make sure my orgone generator is on at sunset to counter the chemtrails. I see a man with a jackhammer tearing up clouds. Seriously, this is very nice. If I could see the sunset 44 times a day, this one would definitely be one of them. Comments are closed.
