MyWorld Tuesday

Winter is definately here, This morning everything looked like being touched by a little baby powder.


Now it looks like this. A little early this year.

SkyWatch Friday

I spent a week in Houston, Texas, lately. After two hot and rainy days the sun came out and we saw a bright blue sky. I was impressed by this building which really tried to reach the sky. I took the photo from the 22d floor of our hotel. No idea what the exact height is and how many floors there are in it.

This picture was also taken from the same floor in the opposite direction. It clearly shows the pollution at the horizon. Funny you can't see the smog right above you.

SkyWatch Friday

Where could you have a better view on the sky than being in the sky? Last week I went to Houston, Texas, and spent to and fro about 24 hours in planes. Feels good to see the clouds from above. There you see the variety of clouds like endless white landscapes with mountains and valleys, without crowds, traffic and noise.
So peaceful.

Approaching  Heathrow (London) meant disappearing into the mist.
