Photo of the Day (08/19/06)

Sunset at 35,000
Orange and brown are two of my favorite colors, so it is easy to understand why my eyes took such a fancy to this shot taken from an airplane as Patrick Powers took off and away from the Hawaiian islands. At first glance you’d think it was a fiery sunset over gently rolling waves in the Pacific, but it’s really a sunset captured at 35,000 feet. Mind-boggling when you think about it – don’t you agree? Fabulous work on Patrick’s behalf and I hope to see more in the Gadling Flickr Pool.
