Taking Pictures From the Airby Ellen DuBois on 11/03/18
When I first started flying with my fiance, (over 23 years ago). I was nervous. I was barely okay on a short flight and felt like kissing the ground after landing safely.
Over time, I found that bringing my camera helped. I'd focus on the beauty around me. The earth took on an entirely different look from above. The land, separated by lines and shapes of brilliant colors, roads, farms, mountains, water and more, is so incredible when you're up in the air! Taking pictures while flying took my mind off my anxiety because I focused on the amazing views and the pictures I took. Flying went from frightening to exciting.
The picture above is from a short flight we took from the Taunton Municipal Airport to Plymouth, MA. It's less than a 10 minute flight and the views are nothing short of amazing.
I love my Nikon D5200 24.1 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera Body Only (Black) camera. (I included this link so you can check it out. There are newer models, but this is the one I have.)
