CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE: EARTH
Last summer I flew from Pittsburgh to Phoenix, Arizona to see the Grand Canyon. I had not flown in a plane since 911 so I booked a window seat so I could see and photograph everything there was to see. I was the typical tourist, happy, excited and camera visible around my neck.
As we approached our destination the plane lowered so we could see the earth below. Living on the east coast and never being on the west coast before I did not know what I was seeing. I kept zooming my lens in more and more and still could not figure out what I was seeing. The landscape looked so different to me. It really looked like those picture of the moon’s surface that you see on TV. So I just clicked away and decided I’d wait until I downloaded my photos to figure it all out.
All I can say is I must have been so excited that I couldn’t believe what was right before my eyes. The mountain ranges of the Grand Canyon from 6,000 to 8,000 feet in the air. Dah! Below are a few of the pictures I took of the earth from way up high in the aircraft.
Was I suffering from the lack of oxygen or just giddy with excitement for my trip in process? Does some of these pictures look like the moon’s surface to you? (smile)

I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their well wishes. I feel much better thanks to your thoughtful comments and prayers. I hope to catch up on other challenges before the end of the week. I think I have liked or commented on your posts that I missed while under the weather. THANK YOU!
