Shots From the Sky

I shot these over the weekend. If you click on any of the images, you can see them full-size.

This is a shot looking out towards Long Island. The layer of white above the horizon is really a layer of schmutz. More over land, it appears darkish. The schmutz layer is why the three photos after this one look a little hazy.

There's probably an approved meteorological term for "schmutz layer." I don't know what it is and I don't give a frak enough to go look it up.

Chester Airport (SNC)

A quarry. It has eaten away most of the hill.

This is a nuclear plant. For awhile, the Feds thought that a light airplane could do serious damage to one. Maybe if one hit the transformer field (next to the railroad tracks), a crash could take the plant offline, but that's about it.

I think this is a frontal boundary. It was bright sunshine on one side and overcast and humid on the other side. The camera is facing towards the north.

Low cumulus clouds and approximately the peak of leaf season.

This is the corner of the above shot. I have been flying over this area for years and never noticed this mine, probably because it is fairly close to the airport and I have other things on my mind during those parts of a flight.
