I’m a window seat kinda gal.
I could easily spend the first hour of a flight dreamily watching the world fall away beneath me. Noticing the curves of coastlines, counting scattered islands, spotting winding rivers and tall mountains, or discovering weird cloud formations floating by.
And what I love most of all is that no matter how cloudy or rainy the day is, the sun is always out once you’ve risen above the clouds.
Unfortunately I haven’t always had the best camera with me mid-flight, but I’ve used whatever I had on hand to snap away at the things I see. Here’s my selection of the 10 best views I’ve had from the air.
2014 – Sydney to Bali (Blue Mountains, Australia)
2013 – Seattle to San Francisco (Golden Gate Bridge)
2007 – Mt Cook helicopter flight (New Zealand south island)
2006 – Gold Coast to Hobart
2014 – Sydney to Bali (desert, Northern Territory, Australia)
2009 – Australia to Los Angeles (LA skyline)
