View From Above

Denmark from above

Denmark from above

I love that moment right before a plane’s descent where you have a clear view of everything underneath you and what you’re about to experience. The feeling is a blend of excitement and anticipation if you’re headed somewhere new; happiness to come home and sadness to leave where you’ve been if you’re on the return.

This photo was taken last week flying over Denmark on my way to Sweden. The clouds and water were hit with sunshine in such a way that made the landscape look almost unreal. Impressive what one can shoot just out of an airplane window.

  1. I liked this photo )) I have traveled very intensively for the past few months, so it is all very familiar )) I like to fly during the daytime, when the sky is a vivid mixture of sun rays and clouds. There was only once when I enjoyed a night flight, which was to New York. The city lights were fabulous, emblazoning the dark background in a bizarre pattern ))

  2. Someone should start a blog (if it hasn’t already been done) of photos from airplane windows…
