View From Above

When flying, I am always far more comfortable with a window seat as I prefer to be able to see where I am going.

I have also developed a habit of taking photos from the plane, and later determining the location of the photos for no other reason than pure curiosity. Some of these photos turn out to be fairly ordinary, but some great ones have come out too.

I have been in Sydney for the last couple of days on business, and took this photo on approach to Sydney from seat 27F on Qantas 737-800 VH-VXA, of Lake Woronora, as shown here on Google Maps.

You can see the town of Helensburgh between the lake and the Pacific Ocean, which fills the top of the photo. The city of Wollongong is tucked away in the top right corner.

Just a great shot.
