The Show In The Sky

The sun already seemed bigger than normal as it set in the west up the street from my NY home. I went for my camera with the long zoom lens to give the appearance of an even larger orb as I stood in the middle of the street to get this shot through some trees. The sun is obscured by thin clouds as well.
While flying over Florida earlier in the day, this big wall of puffy clouds caught my eye from my window seat. This is a typical stack of thunder shower producing clouds for this time of year in Florida and other parts of the east at 33,000 feet. It's great to fly right next to a stack like this to see the cloud up close. But sometimes, those clouds produce lighting and better to keep ones distance just in case.
