3. Aerial views


There are not a lot of aerial views in my collection - I would like more - because the landscape is so fascinating in high from a small plane.  It was a toss up between the flight over the great salt pan of Lake Eyre in flood or this flight over the Whitsunday Islands.

In the end I picked the Whitsundays because of the colour and unexpected swirls in this shot. Taken towards the end of a short exhilarating flight over islands and coral reefs.

  1. And a view I have not seen before. The colours and shapes are wonderful, Joan. I had a chopper ride over the Bungle Bungles which engendered the same feelings.

    1. That would be great flight to take ... maybe one day.

  3. The colour of the sea up that way is to die for.

    1. Actually the area is quite unspoilt. Even the resorts seemed to nestle into their islands.
