Central Asia, From 38, 000 Feet




I had not expected to reach England via Hong Kong when I went up from Australia in 2007, but that turned out to be the route, including five hours over China and five hours over Russia. This gave me the opportunity to exercise my Fuji FinePics S5600 out the window from nearly eight miles up, and captured a series of images over Western China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan. Here the view is north, looking from the Altai Mountains of Mongolia toward Pazyryk in Siberia (as nearly as I could figure from the GPS map on the seat screen!) The camera was locked on full automatic; you'd never guess the plane was shuddering with turbluence. Photo by Mike, 2008.
