Looking at the Sky - Goldenrod Hue

I hate to miss Tisha'a Looking at the Sky. However, our large main computer, after seven faithful years, has quit. Luckily we have two kids here for the summer, so Patti has the means to do her work.Thankfully we aren't so cheap that we skipped paying the $49 for the Carbonite backup, so nothing is lost. But I hope to be faithful to this fine meme, so I am using my work MacBook today and using the IPhoto edit software for the first time on an old scanned print. Here we are flying back from our honeymoon in 1986 on an Eastern Airlines Tri-Star, and the sun is setting on our side of the plane. The sun appears to set under the leading edge of the wing. The graininess is forgotten by the burst of goldenrod at eye level...

Hey Ralph, I too am sorry about your computer crash. I am always in dread of that happening. I don't have Carbonite. I do have all the SD's, etc. for pictures. We do have some old computers we can use.
This was a happy occassion for you guys. I remember coming back from our honeymoon. We were flying back from San Antonio in my '69 Ford Thunderbird.

Sorry about the computer - glad to know everything was backed up, though.

Very nice coming back from the honeymoon picture.

You can always tells a sky shot that was taken from a plane as you just can't duplicate a horizon like that any other way. Almost makes me wish I could fly more often!

Hope you're able to get your computer issues solved soon!

I like your ingenuity - I guess it;s hard to stop you when you're determined! That's an excellent trait...as long as you are behaving yourself. ;-)

I think I see the entire yellow-orange-brown section of the Crayola box in there - especially my favorite retired color, Burnt Sienna!
