The Horizon of Skywatch t'wards Friday Sunset and Weekend Reflections

My SWF on this new meme blog
Thanks to our Host Klaus and his energetic team: Sandy, Sylvia, Wren, Fishing Guy and ...Louise. Look UP!

The fascinating mood and character, beauty and glum, and temper and splendour of the sky are limitless beyond anyone's grasp of understanding how nature's work. It's wonders are God's work of art as Ralph Waldo Emerson attested. Scientists, poets and enthusiasts unite in their quest for answers to their questions and passion of the sky.

The first three photos were taken yesterday after series of rainy days that soaked us wet in our area. Then this bluish day as blanketed with beautiful clouds became the air playground of these most welcome engined critters in the sky so engaging!

Across the horizon
Given angel's wings, where might you fly?
In what sweet heaven might you find your love?
Unwilling to be bound, where might you move,
Lost between the wonder and the why?...

The modern airplane creates a new geographical dimension. A navigable ocean of air blankets the whole surface of the globe. There are no distant places any longer:the world is small and the world is one. ~Wendell Willkie
On a safety net
I never liked riding in helicopters because there's a fair probability that the bottom part will get going around as fast as the top part. ~John Wittenborn
