Out of the aircraft window.....

June 26, 2011

I always love having the window seat, but on the flight from St.Louis to Orlando, I got only an aisle one. Yet, as I saw the sun sinking in oranges and reds, I started aiming the camera….and the gentleman in the window seat (the middle one was vacant, luckily!), a paralegal from Orlando, asked me if I’d like the window. I accepted with alacrity!

As the plane gained height, I looked out to see the iconic Gateway Arch of St.Louis:

We left the mighty Mississipi behind... 3 stl air 240611 rvr The aircraft wing was a steady feature as the dusk deepened: 5 stl air 240611 wing The light on the wing was a comforting beacon that the flight was going well (there was a lot of turbulence): 4 stl ari 240611 dsk Evening shaded into night, and the twinkling lights of many cities showed themselves below me, as we flew onwards: 6 stl air night lts 240611

The colours of a sunset or sunrise, from an aircraft, are (I feel) really incredible sometimes….
