Default It's cold down there

From 35000 feet up in the air a view of winter taking grip of the US.

Hey Selvin

This is why your photo appeals to me...

It hints at the cycle of renewal...snowfall accumulates>spring arrives...and it "migrates" to rivers and creeks and in your
photo this snowmelt water is captured for irrigation.



Ms. Young also captures this cycle quite here...(at a previous photo of the day).

Yeah Selvin, do you have any idea _where_ over the western us you took the photo? From the looks of it, it was Kansas or Neb.

Yes, they are watered fields using circular irrigation systems. A few are still green but that will change soon as the winter snow arrives.

McCleod, I wish I knew the exact location but it was taken during a trip from Chicago to Hawaii. This direct flight takes a route over the mainland that exits the continent around San Francisco.

Digcamfan, your comments always a joy to read because of their deep manings.

Very nice photo, but at 35000 feet up it would be must colder. -50 F degrees.
