From my series World from Above. Captured on a commercial flight from Edinburgh to Munich. I was particularly pleased to have a clear view and clean window as we took off from Edinburgh eastwards over the Firth of Forth before we turned south exactly over the Isle of May. A few minutes later the cloud closed in.

Isle of May, Firth of Forth, Scotland, UK

Lumix, DMC-TZ-10. Post-pro crop and tonal correction in CS4. No other post-pro.

    Lucky you…. Nice one Lassie.

  • I definitely was, Larry. Never had such a clear view as this. I actually got an even clearer one a few seconds later right bang over the isle but there was lens flare from the sun as we banked.
    Have a great autumn day Down Under:-)

    good chance well taken.
  • Ranald, yep, I jumped at the chance. I did wave down to you on the way over this time but there was cloud so you wouldn’t have seen me:-) Kasia

    such remarkable clarity in this great capture!! well done indeed!


  • The clarity is mainly thanks to the pilot and the weather:-) I then waited for the right chance to shoot – with the Lumix cam you have too, if I remember rightly.
    And I’m fine though quite a lot has been happening. Maybe we’ll get a chance to meet up next year when I’ll be back a few times. Greetz, Kas
