Headbangers--Look Down--(I'm Back!!!)

The two thoughts are not related other than the fact that without the second I wouldn't be doing the first.

I'm back online and I'm WIRELESS!!! Wow! My modem quit working nearly a week ago, and after some hours on the phone with tech support (both the one for the company and my personal tech support -- my son Jeff, who was actually the one who figured it out since the company insisted it was working)  and a wait for the new modem to show up at my door, I am back in business.

When Craver VII announced the theme of Look Down, I started thinking of all the great shots I had in the archives looking down. I had to then admit to the team that that had made me dizzy.



Having overcome the vertigo, I did my photo search, realizing that I had been looking down from the London Eye, and from Seattle's Big Wheel.



I looked down at the staircase at Scotty's Castle. Ooooooh, I'm dizzy again.
[edit: Actually, taking another look at the staircase, and knowing myself, and having my husband take a look at the picture as well, we have determined that we were probably looking up. But it still makes me dizzy.]

I have looked down into Box Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Canyonland, as well as  several other canyons not pictured including the Grand Canyon.





But my best Looking Down shot is this one. And no flight I have been on has gone over Mt. Rainier again in quite that same way.
Check out the other headbangers in my sidebar to see what they have looked down at.

Kathy: What a wonderful group of Looking down photos. Love the view of Mt. Rainier.

Welcome back, or down to earth again. Love the mountain from above! You would think there would be a lot of "looking down" photos from air craft, but it is actually hard to get good shots through those windows.

Far out! It looks like Ranier has been equipped with a Star Wars-type array similar to the Death Star's superlaser emitter.

Seriously though, that photo is really fantastic!!
