Weekly Photo Challenge: Story

with one comment

I am late to the field this week – and I missed the previous one altogether. I have been busy on flickr posting the pictures I took on my trip to Chicago. These images come from the flight home and after I posted them I realised they made a story.

For this week’s challenge, do some visual storytelling with your photography.

I try to get a window seat. I don’t always get good pictures. This one was driven by a recent viewing of a painting by Georgia O’Keefe at the Art Institute. This is leaving Chicagoland.

Since the plane was flying westward, we saw the sunset for a prolonged period. The autofocus was having a terrible time but one or two shots proved worthwhile.

To get a decent sunset, you need clouds. Being on top of them is a different perspective.

The sun is now near the horizon but is only visible through the cloud

And then the sun was below the horizon, and we were getting close to Vancouver.

Atop the clouds

Atop the clouds

Heading home from Varadero it was already dark by the time we left the airport, but once we got atop the clouds there was still some afterglow from the sunset. And since the view here is westwards perhaps someone can help with the identification of that star.
