Creative Photo - Air Inversion
This is the latest installment of the always great Creative Photo contest from Roger, Idaho's finest photographer and spokesman. An old shot taken from while on a DC-10 decades ago. The plane's audio was turned to United's channel 9, which has the air-to-ground audio. The other planes on the same frequency were asking the controllers for other altitudes because of the rough air they were in. We, on the other hand, were enjoying the smoothest ride I've enjoyed upstairs.
So we all want smooth sailing in the air, and the picture on the left is serene. but on the right, the colors were inverted. Not sandwiched between the bluest skies and the fluffiest clouds, but in a different mood. I don't know exactly what it is...I see a ship's deck on the sea while navigating through a foggy sky while avoiding the rocks on the shore. Or what? A subtle adjustment in this shot changes the complexion and character of the view. Check out the other outstanding entrants in this week's creative foray into photography.
