17 Aug 11. While flying in unfamiliar areas in Antarctica, one had to be constantly aware of the potential of running into a snow bank, for the lighting was often of a nature where it was nearly impossible to discern whether one was looking at at wall of snow or a field of snow. Making an error in recognizing the difference could ruin the day for an entire crew! Illusions of that nature are just one of many encountered in flight. While we think of such being common in that arena, we are, on occasion, prone to not recognize that they can happen in other endeavors, such as driving and sailing. A few days ago I was looking to the west across Puget Sound and found myself staring at a couple of unusual blue-gray clouds. What really caught my eye was a silhouette at the base of one of them. Thinking I was looking at something really odd, I decided to take a couple shots to share. It was only after working to get the composition I wanted that I realized what it was that I was observing. Take a good close look at the image to see if you can figure out what it was that caught my eye; I have not altered it in any way so you are seeing exactly what I was seeing.
