Spirit in the Sky

Spirit in the Sky

Photoshop was used only to bring out the cloud details. The photo was also rotated 90 degrees clockwise. I'm happy with the result. It's best viewed large.

Spirit in the sky indeed, I love the soft muted pink tones to the vapour trail. Wonderful. The title reminded me though of the old Norman Greenbaum song:

"When I die and they lay me to rest,
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best.
When they lay me down to die,
I'm going up to the spirit in the sky."

I had that song in my head all night last night and this morning when I woke up, Alex. Glad you like the photo, and thanks for the comment!

My favorite part about Einstein was this story I heard, don't know if it is true:

He was so involved in higher thoughts that he didn't know his own phone number. When asked what it was, he would say, "It's in the phone book."

I know people very similar to that here at work.
