Aerial Cloud View

This fabulous photo …

… was captured by Santiago Borja and published by National Geographic.

It is a gigantic cumulonimbus cloud (the kind that pilots are ever vigilant to avoid, especially during summer) over the Pacific Ocean; the photo was taken from about 37,000 ft.

The photographer captured this shot during one of the lightening flashes emanating from the cloud.

As a pilot, I have taken what I consider to be rather interesting pictures from aloft, but I have nothing even approaching this.

2020 Photographic Review, Part 2

Here are your favourite photos from the second half of 2020.


Chute Lake, near my home in Penticton, British Columbia


Oregon grape holly, also known as mountain barberry. I’m not sure why this photo was so popular.


Back in the north: give me a hug before I go to sleep for the winter. 🙂


Winter comes early in Northwest Territories. Although this was only October, there was snow on the ground.


November brought a frosty Friday north of 60. Yes, there’s lots of snow. 🙂


Just before the end of 2020, I posted this picture entitled “Into the Future.” It seems to resonate with many viewers.

So that’s it, everyone. May 2021 see us try to treat each other, and our environment, well.

Have a good week. 🙂
