Another in my series World from Above, captured during a commercial flight at around 8-11,000 metres above sea level. Taken from a commercial flight from Edinburgh to Munich. We flew unusually far west that day and stayed over the west coast of the UK for quite a while with very clear views. Luckily the angle of sunlight was right, the windows clean and scratch-free.
While of course the main Element of this shot is the blue, blue water I was attracted by the gentle shapes of the sandbanks which I spotted off the British isles, probably just north of Barrow in Furness.
