Looking at the Sky - Commuter Views

Looking at the Sky is for us that see the sky among the clutter below. The commuter on Amtrak/Metro North Railroads at Union station in New Haven Connecticut may be more interested in departing/arriving at their destination, not necessarily in the sights. It was a nice day when I dropped daughter Allegra off at the station for a train to New York. Having a camera, I was looking beyond the train cars to see many interesting things, like geometric shaped power towers and their shadows surrounding the destination sign. And, of course, the sky above. For those arriving on this day, they were welcomed with the soft southerly breeze off Long Island Sound under a nice fair-weather clouds. Welcome to the Elm City! See the sky in its glory at Tisha's meme!

Awesomely framed Ralph, I digg that angle and getting in all the great details of the station. Ever the enjoyment of anything to do with trains, train tracks or locomotive photography that's my bag. And the clouds dancing on the background clinches a spectacular shot!

That's a great way to look at New Haven and Union Station! You're right, though, too many people are so busy looking at their feet or ahead of them to reach their cars or other destinations that they never take the time to look up at the beautiful skies above them. And look at what they're missing!

Great shot, Ralph, and Roger is right - the framing is fantastic!

It's good to take time to look upward. All it takes is a tilt of the head and voila! You can out to infinity. I like your phrase "the sky among the clutter below."

I'm loving those pretty clouds and that blue. Great contrast to the station in front.

There is so much going on between you and the skies. I can't imagine so many people!

Cool. A beautiful sky like that has to be a welcome sight in the midst of commuting.

Interesting, I like the parallel lines and angles, the harshness broken by the soft, fluffy clouds.
Good shot!
