Bird's Eye View of Earth

Pacific Northwest from the air

Even with my nose pressed to the glass, I could not see all there was.
The vastness, the remarkable texture, the melding colors under clouds that drift like snow across the face of the earth.

Such a beautiful aeroplane-shots. Those fields are always great with those strict patterns. The last one with small scattered clouds was my fave. Happy flying!

I love the way the farms make a patchwork quilt. And isn't it odd to look down on the top of clouds?

Wouldn't it be fun to hear what the Ancients would have thought about these aerial views.

I always enjoy SWF, but this is the first I have seen where the view is from WITHIN the sky looking out -- marvelous twist in perspective.

Seeing the world from a plane is one of my favorite things. Beautiful pictures. I love to see the mountains, and rivers, and farms! What a neat perspective.

Shot from a glider? Lovely photos, I always like the Jakob's coat of multicoloured firlds and rising land forms. Bird's eye views agive a different perspective to most of the skywatch photos.
