Crack the sky
I'm still sifting through the images from my trip to Dallas. I captured this one on the last leg of my flight home, just a few minutes after I grabbed this image.
They say that photography is about being in the right place at the right time. Although I believe this to a certain extent, I also wonder about higher forces that put the photographer there in the first place. I look at this image, for instance, and wonder if fate had anything to do with it.
After all, pictures taken through plane windows are usually lousy thanks to the scratched plastic-enhanced optics and the bouncy nature of flight. Yet this one managed to come out fine. Lucky, I guess.
I get to witness some pretty neat things through my lens. May this always be so.
Your turn: What three words first come to mind when you see this image?
One more thing: The title is a musical reference. Can you place it?
