Never let the fear of failure be an excuse for not trying. Society tells us that to fail is the most terrible thing in the world, but I know it isn't. Failure is part of what makes us human.

Thanks to GPS which provides the exact location as where we are flying. In the past we had to rely only on the Pilot. Once a drunk pilot hit a snowy mountain because of misperception, considerering that to fly through the clouds.....

A beautiful aesrial shot has been taken with a great view. White dense clouds are depicting a pun of blank deset. An excellent shot John.

Thanks for sharing this image.


Nice arial shot here. Lovely dense clouds, sure wonderful to see (still remember my Cuzco flight thru clouds). Gives feeling of infinity!!!

Nicely composed, and presented. TFS


I always have to sit near the window and see whatever is showing out there, wheter it's clouds or a view on the ground... I love the view from a plane.

I like this one for it's colors and contrast.
Nice work John.


Hallo John.
Nice shot from up there. Good you mentioned Bulgaria, thought it was the Etna of Sicily. lol
Ciao, Jan

Clouds always amaze me. Good thing the doors are tightly shut, otherwise I'd try to walk out....

Lekker sfeertje. Mooie donzige dekbed volle wolkenparty

Hi John,

Nice aerial shot, with a magnificent carpet of fluffy clouds, great sky and a reminder where your taking the photo from!lol!!


Hey, John,
were these clouds the only thing that you happened to see from my beautiful country? Didn't you have the chance to see me, from above?
Just joking :)
Best regards,

Superb cloudscape and the inclusion of a bit of engine and wing makes a nice framing device

Hi John,
wonderful inf light shot, the depth is incredible. Very nice textures and blue tones makes this easy on the eyes.

Very lovely shot. I like the simplicity and framing.

Hi John, I would like to think that I will fly again to try one of these out. Love the colours, well composed to show some of the plane and nicely presented. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Autumn Rains’
