A few days ago, I got on a plane heading just south of west out of Vancouver, in a window seat; the window unscratched and unsmudged, a rarity these days. And then there were clouds low over those Pacific Northwest mountains.

I say “Pacific Northwest” because these peaks’ dreams may be American or Canadian, don’t know which.

Either way, they are gorgeous. I love the contrast in the first image, a rich blue sky above the wispy dreamscape.

Certainly a mystic scene, but is that cloud, or smoke?

These are really quite lovely. I also wonder if there isn't some smoke in that mist. I saw something similar flying over the western US during the fires in Colorado a few months ago.

In a related vein, I've recently been taking some "window seat photography" with an old Leica. Thought you might enjoy: http://justinsomnia.org/2012/07/the-golden-age-of-air-travel/

The dreams of these peaks are most certainly Cascadian.

The bottom picture - especially when blown up (click thru) - looks like a watercolor painting of ocean waves. Awesome.

I do believe I'd like a print of that third one.
