OMG is that a crack in the wing.....!!

It's probably not a good idea for someone with my horreur of flying to sit by the window in a plane, but I figured if it was going to be my last click of the camera it might as well be something as beautiful as the sun going down  (I know right, dramatic to the max haha!!) Ten minutes later I was fast asleep with the help of a little white pill..not good you might be thinking...but so much better than me unnerving everyone in close proximity declaring, 'we're going down, we're going down' especially as we hadn't even taken off yet.....!! Happy Skywatch Friday.....

  1. I flew to Spain with a friend who has a phobia of heights/flying. He told me that he always had a few drinks before to cool the nerves and within ten minutes he was sound asleep...

  2. Bravo for settling into that seat! And kudos for advanced planning with regard to the little white pill! Beautiful pic. Glad it wasn't your last!

  3. Very funny! You "crack" me up! And you haven't even taken off yet. Sheesh. I don't like heights, as I mentioned, but flying doesn't bother me. Go figure!

  4. Yep, you crack me up, too! What a hoot! Just the laugh I needed this evening! Fantastic capture -- awake or asleep, drunk, sober or somewhere in between and I love it, and the colors, and the wing with a crack in it! Have a terrific weekend!

  5. The colors are fantastic.
    I also do not like to fly, but still did not take pills on flights. I found the story very funny. After all, you captured a great image.

  7. You cracked me up! I used to fly all of the time and I can't remember ever seeing a view out the window as gorgeous as this one. I so glad you took that one last snap before that little white pill took you down. :-)

  10. I was once flying home from London and there was a huge delay after we were seated on the plane. The pilots were out looking at something on the bottom of the wing and then someone came along with duct tape and put a piece of it on the wing and we took off. I watched that wing for the next 7 hours in horror. Aren't we nuts?!?

  17. My favorite place for taking photos, a window seat... Used to work for 5 different airlines, so I have severl thousands of photos. Have to scan them paper photos one day.
    I guess the Indian Pacific railway is much more expensive than the plane.

  18. If someone can understand you, it's me! How I hate travelling by plane! it's not natural, if we had to fly we would have wings, don't you think?..Anyway, your "last shot" is wonderful.Great to close the eyes on this..:o)

    Bravo!

  21. I swear by those pills when I fly .. I am not afraid of flying but long flights make me antsy and its better for me to nap than annoy me seat mates

    ReplyDelete
  22. Gorgeous photo! Glad you coped with the flight, even if you had to be unconscious :-)
    Thought of you this week as I had to fly twice for work meetings - I'm not the best flyer either...

  25. Beautiful sky glow! And always love your comments with photos! I must admit that I adore flying and yet I have no head for heights at all! Don't put me on a cliff!

  28. You always put a smile on my face when you talk about flying... Sorry! :-)))

  29. Great shot! I love the way you've framed the sunset with the wing and the window edge (although you probably didn't have much choice in terms of your POV! ;-)

  30. You could not have captured a more beautiful photo from your window! Wow, that is gorgeous. And so glad you came back to us safely...despite the crack! :D
