As the only digital cameras I own are a) my webcam and b) my KRZR K1 cell phone, this submission is a copy of a 35mm shot I took "somewhere" over the Atlantic ocean a few years back, from the window of an Air Canada 747. originally a slide, then printed, then scanned.... so the quality is not too good, sorry.

It was between cloud layers...strato-cumulous below and high-cirrus (or something-or-other!!) above and the sun was about to rise. All I know is we were flying extremely high due to turbulence...something like 49,000 feet if my memory serves me right.

Great pics you guys!! CG the highest I ever flew was in a very old 707 at 52,000 (don't ask - it was Pandemonium World Scareways...the late PanAm to the uninitiated) and there was ice on the inside of the windows despite the Captain turning up the heat to max. Blankets were much in evidence.
The world is definitely round at that altitude! That's way above the normal max. altitude for a 707, but that's the Captain said, I swear. Something to do with headwinds. All I know is that the wings were flapping like crazy, they always did on 707's, if they didn't they would have dropped off. ;-(

Aw, that cat.....I want one!

CG, yes I know I could probably enhance that pic in my Photoshop but it's actually scanned from the only print I have which was mounted on some backboard for hanging and I have no need for another copy...yet.
The original slide is buried in a cedar trunk somewhere, along with my old carousel slide projector. :wink:

Just saw your reply, Peter.

Well, that pic is 10 months old now, Smokey turns a year old tomorrow on the Ides of March :grinning:
Smokey's half-Siamese (mother's side), hence the wedge-shaped intelligent face. But the long hair comes from the father - interesting mix!

But dude... 52k!!?????
You were practically in space!! :| :| :|

LOL @ Sarge - "if I can catch her"...!!

I used to have a Manx cat (tailless) - she was black and white and the best friend I ever had. Unfortunately she died and I never replaced her. Her incredible trick was to leap on to my shoulder from close to my feet - and I'm 6' tall.
I don't think I have any pics.

Well, yeah, she doesn't like me much, and she is outside a lot of time.. so that's why i'm having trouble catching her, but she must come, must be hungry at least 2 times per a day :tongueout:

Uh-oh, claws out time. Actually, sometimes the best shots of animals are taken when they aren't ready or posed. So if your shot shows just a rear end disappearing through a cat flap we'll understand!! LOL

Well yeah i DID made that shots, but it wasn't easy! not at all!

First, i came home, she wasn't there, of course, than, a couple hours later, i get out of the house, i see she came, i go back inside to get camera, and slowly come closer and closer to her... when she seen me :openmouth: she made a move , and climbed the tree (to bad i don't have picture where she climbs on three) when i came closer, she jumps down... and than she hides, later i found it.. and than... oh i think this will be enough to get a picture of action we had (me and queen). :happy:
