On a flight from Tennessee to California (August 2006), I saw this thunderhead and started taking pictures through my window. What really intrigued me was the dark blue of the upper atmosphere. I only wish I'd had a better lens when this photo opportunity presented itself. I hope you enjoy. :)

This is something we don't or can't see everyday from the ground, and it is amazing you caught this when you did. Well done, and yes that blue sky is really awesome! Well done!

This is very pretty, and the lighting and colors are perfect! What more could you ask for but to stick your hand out of the window. It is amazing how the shot came out so clear being you took it through a window.

I am a cloud-loving freak and to me this photo is like having the Cirque de Soleil and Metallica perform together at my wedding (whenever that will be). Hell yeah!!
