My new occasional hobby is taking photos with my iPhone while on a plane. The trouble is that I’m a rule follower and the rules are that phones are to be turned off during take-off and landing. Oh, and did I mention that I’m a bit of a nervous flyer? So when they say turn off your electronics, I’d like passengers to actually do that. Except, I want to take some photos.. and the best times are during take off and landing, when everything is to be off. So sometimes I’ll put my iPhone on airplane mode and take a few shots if the skies are cooperating. These are from a recent flight when we were landing at Laguardia. My issue with these plane shots is they’re not the best clarity since they are through a window. But the view cannot be beaten! My favorites are the shots of the Verrazano bridge.

    These are stunning, if you hadn’t mentioned it I wouldn’t have guessed they were taken through a window. I really, really love these shots!

      Thanks for the comment! It’s the HDR processing in Photoshop that makes them clearer than they otherwise would be!
