I don’t use a drone but when I travel by air I love to take photos. I know the quality will not be perfect through a window covered in scratches, glare and fingerprints, but if you can get over that and accept it as part of the fun of it, and even part of the art in it, then the images can be really worthwhile, I feel.
Some images I capture are just clouds and light, and some are images of the mountains, lakes and seas below. Sometimes the cityscapes can be really pretty, especially at night.
Unfortunately, I often don’t know over which country I’m passing, so I can’t label all my pics as accurately as I would like. There was a time when the pilot used to inform passengers periodically of the countries or mountain ranges below, but I haven’t experienced that for many years.
So here’s a selection of my skyscapes. If anyone can give me more accurate names of the places shown I would be delighted, thank you.

The photos above were over southern Europe Greece and Turkey. I think all the next ones were over Cyprus.

Thanks for looking.
