On my trip back home I had the good fortune of both a window seat, clear skies and a clean window. We took off in a little DASH 8-314 for a flight to Frankfurt. It was a strange experience to climb so steeply over the Alps while the height above the mountain tops kept more or less constant because the mountains got higher and higher.
I’m not afraid of flying, on the contrary I enjoy it very much, but I couldn’t help taking a look at the port turboprop just to the left of this view once in a while thinking how on earth one performs an emergency landing in such a terrain!
No reasons to worry, though, the turboprops were most reliable Rolls-Royce’s.

    Nice shot.Like the cloud formations and mist around the mountains in the background. What a super job you must have to take you to such beautiful places.

  • Thank you very much, Simon. Your encouraging comments are very much appreciated.
    I like my job very much. Within EEC legislation on machine safety. Takes me occationally on small trips, unfortunately rarely outside Europe. Usually I don’t get many chances to shoot a lot. This time I was lucky.

    Oh … breathtaking! This shot is so clear even with the mist. It just looks so heavenly. No worries about landing … I do believe you would just grab a cloud and float down to a nice soft landing. The ALPS … must mean majestic in mountain language.

  • Thank you very much again, Judi. I really appreciate it.
    I think you’re right about the mountain language. They are majestic, at least in European terms.

    The details in the mountains under the snow can be seen so clearly as can the individual trees. The lights skipping across combine with the shadows so nicely.

  • Thank you very much, Gail. Glad you like it.
    Actually I didn’t sit back much. I alternated between having my nose and my camera on the window.
