I love that photo...not only for the wonderful sky but the idea that you are up in the air going somewhere....

Woaaah picturte from a high place. The clouds like cotton candy scattered in the sky. Great shoot.

Hi Linnea, you are a very well traveled lady. Just love this shot!

Hmmm, next time, I will choose a seat behind the wings.

Super cool! I don't think I have ever flown over the eastern Sierras. That is a beautiful shot down below. I seem to go north via the edge of the Pacific and cut and skim along the lower western Sierra coming back into Los Angeles...what a view you had!

This is quite a capture, Linnea. Love that you got a wing in the shot to ad to the drama.

This is marvelous.
I love taking shots whenever I'm up there as well.

Happy SWF weekend.

Hallo Linnea...sitze hier am Laptop in Bayyern und werde langsam gesund. Noch ist die Schulter im Verband und erst in zwei Wochen kann ich mich wieder frei bewegen. Ich hatte viele Schutzengel, um so beweusster lebe ich diesen Sommer.Ins Wasser darf gehe ich auch schon wieder. Nun träume ich mich ein wenig zu dir mit deinen Bildern in die Ferne.liebe Grüße aus Bayern Manuela

The clouds in the sky add nice drama to the beauty on the ground. Your composition and timing is perfect here. As a rule, I don't like taking photos through glass, but recently I've broken this self-imposed rule when in a plane and have liked the results.
