Since we are rapidly nearing Xmas (and no sight of snow here outside Paris), I was feeeling like seeing snow !
I dug into our photo archives in search of the white stuff.Which is a challenge because my husband & I never go sking or on winter holidays in general.
But, I got lucky.
The following are 2 shots that were snapped “up there” in a Boeing that we were on, headed to LAX, in California. We were in September, but the white stuff was down there. And D made good use of the Nikon to capture these views.
Date : September 2006
I had labeled this shot ” Greenland”, because when we were crossing over. I could see our location on the map that the TV screens to show the passengers where they are flying over.
I had no place name listed for this second picture;it could have still been Greenland or a part of Canada.
It looks so wild and untamed, with the sun rising on the horizon. Just gorgeous.
I’m just remembering this flight… we had the BEST seats that we ever had on a transatlantic crossing; the first row behind the Emergency exit ( he he), with the extra wide leg space !! And there was the window on the door that D regularly peeked into, to spot land.
The pictures of a lifetime, on an incredible trip.We have not had the same chance in our flight seating since this flight.
I shall be showing you a few others next week. It might not sound very exciting looking down on land. BUT… you would be surprised by the beautiful colors and forms that we recorded flying over parts of Canada & the US.
Happy weekend to all !
