Tips on What You See Here
I had a few requests from my followers here request that I provide some tips on how to get good photos from inside of any airplane. I decided to create a new sister collection to post those tips rather than include them here. This way the tips will be all in one nice collection rather than spread out throughout this collection.

If you are interested in some tips on how I shoot some of the images you see here, check out my new Tips: Shooting from an Airplane collection.

This will be the only post here about that collection. I will continue to share only aerial shots taken from an airplane here in this collection.

Approaching Salt Lake City
There were some amazing clouds and contrast just before landing in Salt Lake City on Friday. The sun was shining just beyond where we were flying and we were just below thick clouds. (View full screen and zoom in for best results.)

#joinindaily - Look Like A Pyramid

Today's #joinindaily by +Johnny Wills theme is things that "Look Like A Pyramid".

I actually have several images that work for this challenging theme. I tried to find one that I hadn't posted before here on G+. I decided to go with an actual pyramid which definitely looks like a pyramid. This view is an aerial shot of the mighty Mississippi River which is the border between Tennessee and Arkansas. The city is Memphis.

The pyramid shaped building used to be a convention center, but it is now a Bass Pro Shops location. I have some close up shots from driving over the bridge next to it as well. I decided to stick with the aerial shot because I like this better than the close up.

Chimney Rock, Colorado
I have seen this several times when flying to or from San Francisco and it always fascinates me. This is just East of Four Corners just north of the Colorado/New Mexico border.

San Francisco Bay
I had a pretty good view of early morning light on San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge when I was flying home at the crack of dawn last week. The window was darker on the edges, sorry for the darker bands in a couple of spots.

#joinindaily - Looking Out

Today's #joinindaily by +Johnny Wills theme is "Looking Out".

This shot was taken a few minutes after (Eastbound) the shot I just posted. This one was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S7 cell phone, rather than my Sony a6000.

You can find other shots from airplanes in my "Shot from an Airplane" collection here: https://plus.google.com/collection/svMrb (or click the link above).

San Juan National Forest & Rio Grande National Forest from a distance
Since I'm have a ton of of great aerial shots from my recent trip to/from San Francisco, I thought I'd post another one. The lake you see is just south of Durango, Colorado. We were flying right over the CO/NM border.

#joinindaily - Beautiful Reds

Today's #joinindaily by +Johnny Wills theme is "Beautiful Reds" (Not Flowers!)?.

I love the red tones you see when flying over southern Utah. This is one example.

Flying near the Colorado/Utah border
I believe this is Utah but was having a hard time finding the specific location on Google Maps.
