From The Air (Yet) Again

Clearly, I fly a great deal. And clearly, I like to look out the window, dream, and see the world from a new vantage point. At left: the salt-evaporating ponds full of bacteria along the shores of San Francisco Bay, shortly before landing in April. Below: Hamburg and its major harbor along the Elbe, shortly after takeoff in September. In the three galleries lower down: more of the lovely colorful salty ponds plus a few shots from a late-May flight into SFO when sky was clear enough to see over the peninsular mountains to the Pacific Ocean;  more of Hamburg as well as clouds above London and easternmost England, later on that flight; and then a trio taken while flying into SFO again from Dallas, in September. And at the very bottom, a large photo showing both some salt ponds near San Jose, as well as the mountains on the peninsula and the sky over the Pacific Ocean at sunset. There are reasons I’m always happy when I fly home to the Bay Area :-).

  1. Hi Paul, very nice shots from the air! I found the ones of Hamburg particularly interesting. Makes me want to go back there! Hope you’re having a great weekend in Bangladesh!

    Amazing views! Made me realize how much I have missed seeing even though I’ve been right on top of all these places too! Thanks for enlightening me!

    Beautiful! I had never known about the salt-evaporating ponds near San Francisco – I remember noticing them on the map but never saw them in person. The colors are incredible.
