Sky Island

Another boring day, another typical sight out of the window: a sky island!

Okay-okay, I'll explain what this is, in case it's confusing: this is a landscape (skyscape?) featuring an inversion in the mountains, where the clouds sit below the peaks. The "island" is another mountain peak covered by evergreens and located closer to me, the photographer. 

The surreal quality of this image—both the pastel colors and the unusual subject matter—actually remind me of Russian fairy tales that begin by describing rivers of milk and shores of kissel (a fruit drink).
