CROWN OF CLOUDS

During my last trip to the Grand Canyon in Arizona, my parents and I joined a bus tour out of convenience. I didn’t like the idea of getting lost in the middle of nowhere as it has been years since my last visit by car. The only downside with taking bus tours is you don’t get to stop anytime for photos. You follow a specific schedule, which oftentimes get delayed by inconsiderate fellow passengers…but I will not dwell on that. Anyway, I ended up taking my photos from inside the bus, which at most times end up blurry. This photo was taken when we were about half an hour away from the west rim of the Grand Canyon. I noticed how these jet-stream clouds were filling up the sky and jetting out of the mountain top like a crown. I took multiple shots but the roadside portion of the photos were a bit blurry due to the speeding bus. I decided to angle my iphone 7plus towards the mountain top so as not to capture the roadside in a blur. This one turned out sharper although I would have loved this more had there been a man on a horse on the mountain top. LOL!

FLIGHT TO MARS

Mars

Thankfully, airline companies now permit passengers to turn on their phones (airplane mode) the entire flight.  This allows you to go online through their wifi service and in my case, take photos from up in the air.  The photo above was taken around 7am just a few minutes after takeoff from the Las Vegas airport. The early morning sun was casting shadows on the rough terrain and enhanced the redness of the soil turning the entire landscape into something out of this world. I used my iPhone 6 to take this photograph.
