This month's winner is LISA ROBERTIELLO of Burbank, California:

While traversing Ireland many years back, my husband and I enjoyed a leisurely afternoon drive through the country and seaside areas of the southwestern coast. From the village of Doolin, we followed the R478 and stopped at the Cliffs of Moher on our way toward Hag's Head.

Looking south from the cliff's edge, I became fascinated with the crashing waves and the flow of water in and out of a cave below us. Transfixed, I told my husband how the sound of the waves down below reminded me of a jet.

That's when he directed my attention heavenward, pointing to the jet passing over us.
