Broken Skies

You are here:

Separating you and the vacuum of space is an atmosphere 60 miles thick. The troposphere, however, the first atmospheric layer encircling our planet that can sustain life, is only 7.5 miles thin. A narrow band of airspace inhabited by storm clouds, passenger jets, bald eagles, condors, bats, mayflies, and the evaporating light and long shadows of sunset. In short, the Broken Skies Gallery displays the artistry of winged wild creatures in their aerial realm, and images of those moments when they intersect with our terrestrial world where both prey and light waves scatter.
