    Just enlarged that pic. (this new version doesn't seem to enlarge so easily as the old one, by the way) and I think that is the isle of Wight, with the Needles showing up white in the centre.

      I couldn't enlarge , I will need to look at a map, as we did cross what looked like an island before the mainland , I will be flying to Gatwick again in December, I will see if they cross the same area.

      It could be either, depending on the time of day and latitude/altitude.

      Beautiful sky, and neatly balanced by the reflections and the colourful (prayer?) flags in the foreground.

        Mid-afternoon - a somewhat dishevelled "mare's tail":


        Late evening of the same day:

          LOVE these! A perfect pairing of "diagonal clouds"!

        Another Skyscape from Singapore. This one looking NE from the new Megayard at Tuas South:


        And looking SE from the same place:

        Take your pick, if this belongs here, or should be in some Ship thread.

          Oh. let it stay here! The vessels are mere incidentals in two delightful views. There are plenty of ships elsewhere to look at!

              What a catch. I have counted the contrails on days when it seems busy but I don't think I have ever seen half as many.

                No, I didn't know about flightradar24 - what fun. I can now check on a regular morning flight that seems to be from roughly ESE. I've often wondered whither it is bound.

                seems to be in the morning then nothing all day. , but fascinating watching out for them.
                I think that was at the weekend, so maybe more planes passing.. I know here at the airport it is the busiest time for flights coming and going,,

              Many nice pictures here. I should look into 'Photo Assignment' more often, I see that....
              Anyway, as I sat by the dinnertable tonight, a beauty of a cumulus rised on the north sky. Had to put down knife and fork and grab my Pentax.

                Thanks Thijs!
                At my job pc here now, I see that the image appear much, much darker..., and the clouds very much "browner" than on my lap top screen.
                That was not effects added by me.
                Difference in screen quality I guess, but it suddenly leed me to think about all the images I've posted previously. Because I see the image as on my job pc as a drop in quality. (Hope not many of you got the Benq BL2410 skreen then :-)

              Yes, you should, Sterkoder, and into other threads as well. The variety of seeing what other people are doing is good for all of us.
              Great cumulus image.

                Thanks.
                Yes, the variety is good.
                The main reason for me posting my images more or less in the same post is that often (nearly always) my photos include ships, cars, architechture, nature and more. If they are taken in Kristiansund..., well..., they go into the Kristiansund thread. And so on.
                There are so many different threads in here that after a photoshoot and editing of 10-20 images, it would take forever to post one here, two there, five another place and three in a fourth thread, and so on.
                When I do my trips to Ålesund, Åndalsnes, Oppdal, Sunndal and so on, it's all one and the same trip, and I find it quite natural to post all in one thread...., and you viewers would not need to jump back and forth in and out of different threads all the time.
                Well, I can only be better..., can't we all? :-)

                Ah, but I was referring to your words "I should look into....", i.e. not necessarily post, but to see and even comment on other members' pics.

              pitty you do it on that way Svein.
              i hardly look at the city tours from our members,just now and then.
              Only Kristiansund (of yout cities threads) i look more often because you ar living there,but the rest of al those cities,not my cup of thea.
              i still have the idea that a tug belongs in he tug threat,heavy list vessel ,in it's own threat ectectect.
              now i maybe see a vessel in one of your Norway cities thread,but i'm surching in its own thread later,did forget it was in a city thread.
              best regards Thijs
