Skywatch Friday - Cloudy Colorado and Sunny Seattle

We just took a short trip to Seattle to visit family. When we left Colorado it was cloudy and by the time the plane took off it was snowing heavily. But Seattle was beautiful and sunny the whole time. That's quite the opposite of what I'd expect in February!

This first picture was taken at Denver International Airport, looking at some of the baggage and deicing equipment under a heavy sky. Most of the deicing equipment was in use by the time we took off.

The next one was taken in Seattle, looking up at the branches of a tree which was still in the evening sunlight.
I'll be putting up a pretty picture that includes Mount Rainier in my next post, probably on Sunday.

  2. Nice shots, interesting juxtaposition. I can't wait for the Rainier shots--we used to live in Puyallup and could see Rainier from our back porch when it was "out" as they say in Washington.

  7. Loved taking the trip to Seattle with you. I have not been to the new Denver airport and it looks too big for me. That is a neat picture of the blue carts.

  10. I like the uniformed color of the equipments, they look like big toys.

    Oh okay evening sunlight, now I know how it looks like. Looking forward to Mount Rainier.

  12. We've gone to the Seattle - Vancouver area twice for about three weeks each time and it only rained once for 15 minutes! Nice view of the Chicago El. My buddies and I used to get around Chicago by El in our high school days when ever we could. Very beautiful city shots!!
