Flying High

When I was little, I always dreamed of flying… much like Peter Pan.   I never imagined the real thrill of being in a plane miles above the Earth, looking down at the clouds below you.   It is a very surreal experience, and I never get tired of being in a plane, and looking out at the wonder below me.

This photo was taken somewhere between DFW (Dallas, TX) and ORF (Norfolk, VA); the sun was just rising, and the colors from the light hitting the cloud layer was mesmerizing.   Somehow, it just isn’t the same when viewed from the ground.

My next flight, I will try to sit in front of the wing or waaaay back in the back. I Love the views... but the wing annoys me. :)

I like to see the wing (it's why we're still up there)!.......

I too like the view from a window seat at 20/30,000 ft.... thank you for sharing yours today!.....:)

I agree with you. Nothing like the view from the window of a plane. This is an awesome shot.

I agree, you can't beat a sunrise or sunset viewed thru the window of a plane.

I like how the sunset is delicately tinting the wing of the plane pink.


No matter if blue or if grey,
The sky is my favorite way
To find my heart’s ease;
And now, if you please,
I must go look up straightaway.
