CBBH Photo Challenge: View from an Aircraft

I love taking photographs through the window of a plane. Sometimes there is not much to see, or the view is blocked by plane parts, but other times it can be sublime. When we were coming in to land in Bhutan we dropped down close to the vast Himalayan mountains, eventually flying along a winding narrow valley before executing a sharp and short landing at Paro. Can you see the snowy peaks in the distance?

This year we flew to Lord Howe island twice, or three times if you count the day we turned back in rough weather. The window was partly clouded, hence colour is not reliable, but here is a view of the lagoon and one end of the very small island.

Coming in to land at Sydney we circled over the north of the harbour, flying over Manly and the north shore before turning to come down over the inner western suburbs. People looking out of the opposite side of the plane would have seen the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, as I have many times before.

This window is gloriously clear, a new plane on route to Singapore. It was a wonderfully comfortable and smooth flight, epitomised by this peaceful photograph of the wing and the clear blue sky.

This month I would like to share Northern Narratives with you. Judy lives in Minnesota and takes wonderful photos of nature and the world around her … she also knits and sometimes writes about wool and colour, fascinating for me as it is something I used to enjoy, but don’t get to any more. The other is an Australian blogger, Jenn who lives in Qld, and shares her words and photos at The Serenity Space. Hop on over to visit these lovely blogs by women sharing their life, hopes and dreams! Check out Marianne’s blog too and join in the monthly blog hopping challenge.

    • i will judy, just so busy with summer harvest and processing right now, no time to sit and think about new things …. just time to grab a few photos and do a blog while i have a peaceful cup of tea 🙂

    • thanks gilly … it is hard to think of someone who is not well known … we do see the same people commenting on different favourite blogs don’t we? a community of course 😀

  1. Incredible photos, Christine. it’s so exciting taking photos from on high, isn’t it? You’ve managed some very clear shots there – well done!

    Thanks for sharing links to two blogs you love to visit. I already know both of these ladies, and endorse your encouragement for others to visit them.
