the view from my window

The sun was rising as we left this morning on an almost empty plane.

As the day brightened, this is what I saw out the window.

Then, for quite a while there was a grey/white blanket below, until:

Doesn't this look like frost on a window does early in the morning?

I love the way rivers wander.

Then, more grey-white blanket outside for awhile.

And then the patchwork appeared. 

and the contours

and the 'ferns.'

And this, just as we started to descend--surrounded by miles of open fields.

Is anything more beautiful than nature?

Well, maybe.  

This is my grandbaby.  Isn't she dear?


  1. These are wonderful aerial photos. What a lovely clear day you had for your flight. Your granddaughter is beautiful!

  2. Great shots.
    Isn't it nice to be a grandma!

  3. I love your photos; the one of the snow could be a really nice texture! Your grandbaby is adorable

  4. Awww... that last imagine is a sight to behold! :c)

  5. Those aerial shots are so fascinating. What a lovely flight you had, but I'm sure nothing could top that precious little treasure at the end of your journey. ~Lili
