Leaving Dublin Airport early on a December morning, below.
When travelling, I really love to pass the time taking photos out through the aircraft’s window. For those who will only accept technical perfection, this is not for them. Scratched windows, sometimes with condensation and reflections do not give a perfect image, and often, depending on the position of the sun there will appear a spotty effect on the images. But in general I’m happy with a pleasing image and to gain that I’m often happy to forfeit technical perfection.
Below are mountains in Europe, I guess the Alps.

The following photos are views on the flight from Kolkata to Aizawl, Mizoram, via Imphal
Thanks so much for viewing my photos. If you would like to see more aerial photos please take a look at my earlier post:
Also, there are more photos on my website:
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.
