Day Overcomes Night

Day Overcomes Night - Gulf of MexicoAbove the tightly spaced ridges of a stratiform cloud layer over the Gulf of Mexico, we travel through smooth air on the edge of the earth’s shadow…from our vantage point in the darkness, we witness the advancing day overcome the night, driving the shadows westward…The cloud deck beneath us that seemed dimensionless in the dark slowly takes shape as light bestows contrast; ridges and troughs appear in alternating stripes of light and shadow.
