Photo Essay: Views from the Plane
One of my favorite experiences when flying is taking in the view. The world looks different from above the clouds and I try to capture as much of it as I can from the moment we push back to the moment we land.
It’s easy to get good pictures, especially if the light is cooperating. Use a lens hood and keep it pressed against the window to avoid getting reflections in your pictures. You may have better results turning autofocus off but it pays to experiment first with autofocus on, which is the usual mode I employ.
Here are some of my favorite photos from recent flights:
Landing in São Paulo, Brazil on an American Airlines Boeing 777-300ER
A Delta flight on an Airbus A320 from Detroit to New York’s LaGuardia Airport
Departing JFK on a Delta Boeing 767-300 to San Francisco
