Clarity

I like clarity. Between people when there’s understanding, compassion and rapport, my heart soars. When pondering a problem, I love that moment of clarity when a solution emerges. There’s another sort of clarity that gets me excited, and that’s when the air is free of haze, smoke, dust or anything else that limits our ability to see far into the distance. Recently we’ve enjoyed each of these forms of clarity, and here’s an example of the latter.

When our hometown is free of anything that reduces clarity, pix like this are possible. Interestingly, our eye sees it this way on most flights. While you can improve clarity with Photoshop, it can be quite a bit of work and still not come across with the punch of a clear day. This one was back on 10/14 when we flew sweet Sarah, and we flew yesterday for another clear day that I’ve sent pix of to Edhat (see link in the right column here). She also got to see our peaks from the air for her first time, and one of my favs from those pix are the shots of Tooth Rock (aka Cathedral Peak).

The light was just right for a good look deep into the “cavity” at the bottom as we passed. How many people have lived in this over the ages?
