Rambling Woods said...

I hope your feeling better. I had that kind of summer too..

Abraham Lincoln said...

You do have some special photos of vapor trails left by the airplanes. I yearn for the return of propeller planes like the Constellation with its three and four piston engines and tr-tail. I flew across the Pacific Ocean in them a couple of times. I know you get around too. So you will know what I mean when I say look down and see a huge ship about as big as a common house fly. The only way we could tell it was a ship was by following the "V" wake in the ocean that stretched out for miles behind the ship.

You have a nice post. I hope to see another nice one next week.

david mcmahon said...

Brilliant work, Stewart. And a fine tribute to our wonderful Dot.

Hope you're on the mend now.

Donna said...

Love them all, but the first one is so spectacular, and the last one just reminds me of the end of a happy winter day. It may not be winter at all in that picture, but the lighting reminds me of winter where I grew up.
