A Morning Over Atlantic

It was a morning flight across Atlantic ocean from UK to US.  The Sun was already high in the sky but it was still giving its soft golden light over the clouds and the sea below.. I was sitting by the window seat watching this beautiful scene slowly passing by. I felt so refreshing and peaceful. The sight wiped out my sleepiness and tiredness from the trip.

Behind the wing

The cloud opened up to show the calm water below.

Over the open cloud

Nothing lasts forever, the show was ending.

Leaving the trail behind

I could not resist a cup of coffee to complete the morning.

A morning cup of coffee

I am not sure now what the rest of the flight was. I was probably picking up an easy Sudoku problem from the airline magazine to solve and finishing the coffee 🙂

    Sunrises and sunsets from the air definitely give real meaning to the word awesome.

    Wonderful photos, YC. Sounds like a pleasant flight. Perhaps you enjoyed a little sleep as well.

      Thank you Gallivanta! It was a pleasant flight and I think you are right. I probably took some short naps as well 🙂

    Lovely photos indeed. I always just pictured you sitting at your computer reading my blog and writing nice comments. lol
    Seems you also get up and go. 🙂

      🙂 Your perception is pretty close to the reality 🙂 I do not get up and go as often (my going around is with keyboard and the screen). Once in a while I have opportunities to go about. I wish I have more of those. Thank you.

    Amazing sky, and a great capture!! 😀 I love sky and clouds – how did you know?! 😉

    I’ve only ever been on two trips on an airplane to Spain – one there, and one home. I’m not much of a traveller at all, mainly down to cost, I don’t have money for that kind of holiday, but also – I hate travelling! 😦 But when I see a beautiful sight like this it makes me want to travel, it’s one of the highlights of travel. I only saw the sky at night on my trip to Spain, it was interesting though, all those twinkling lights below, hard to believe we live down there! On my way home, we arrived in England at dawn, there was a beautiful sunrise – apparently, unfortunately I was sitting on the wrong side of the plane too see it – ugh, just my unlucky luck!! 😐

    Do you get to travel a lot? You like Sudoku? It will certainly keep you busy on a trip! 🙂


    • YellowCable September 21, 2014 / 4:43 pm

      Thank you Suzy 🙂 I do not know this ahead of time if that is what you meant. I just had a camera with me 🙂

      I would not classify myself as a traveler but I do travel from time to time. I just had a little more opportunity lately. Time and cost are absolutely the main factors 😦 When flying, I like to sit by the window even with the downside of having more difficulty to get in and out. You are right even so, you could also be on the wrong side of the plane to see interesting things outside. I like to see twinkling lights of the city below too. I think I still have a picture of London lit up when I flew over before dawn. The sight was spectacular!

      I started Sudoku these past years. I was so bored on a trip somewhere within US and started to find something to do. I recalled it took going and back trip to solve that one. Yes, it certainly keep me busy. By the way, I only like those easy ones 🙂

    Incredible sky shot, I like the clouds, they are really amazing!


    • YellowCable September 22, 2014 / 12:54 pm

      Thank you and I am glad you like the the clouds.


  7. LadyPinkRose September 22, 2014 / 1:13 pm

    I really enjoyed this, YellowCable. Oh, those clouds taken from a plane window …. just fantastic. Wishing I was you! Thank you for this Gift you have given me today! Love, Amy

      I am glad that you like those clouds. I was lucky for the show 🙂 Thank you Amy.

    Nice shots! Thanks for letting me come along as I will never fly again 🙂 Love cloudy photography and you captured some great ones 🙂 your friend who always has her head in the clouds 🙂


  9. anotherday2paradise September 25, 2014 / 5:33 pm

    Beautiful cloud pics, YC. I think watching the clouds is the best part of flying, so I always have to sit by the window. 🙂


  10. Otto von Münchow September 26, 2014 / 1:38 pm

    What a gorgeous sky you have captured. Particularly the first photo is so beautiful with gorgeous light and delightful cloud formations.


    • YellowCable September 26, 2014 / 7:13 pm

      Thank you very much Otto for your comments!

    Beautiful pics… happy weekend 🙂


  12. inesephoto September 27, 2014 / 5:13 am

    So beautiful! Seldom the windows are clean enough to take a decent image. 🙂 Reflections of the clouds look magic. Thank you for sharing this beauty!


    • YellowCable September 27, 2014 / 5:18 am

      You are right about the cleanliness of the windows. They also are not quite good for flare too. Thank you!

    My ears pop bad around this part of the journey through the clouds, I have to suck on boiled sweets. I love clouds and seeing objects/pictures in them 🙂


    • YellowCable September 28, 2014 / 6:51 pm

      I know what you meant. I do not like the pressure discomfort during plane descending on lower clouds too. It can get worst if your ears could not adjust to the change. It was so painful. Yes, objects formed by clouds are interesting 🙂


  14. BeWithUs September 29, 2014 / 8:34 am

    Thank you so much for sharing such amazing views from above! Cheers~ 😀


  15. Dalo 2013 September 30, 2014 / 9:34 pm

    Great post & photos ~ the view flying can put me in such a great introspective mood, and if accompanied by a cup of ‘jo, then made all the better. Cheers.


    • YellowCable September 30, 2014 / 9:53 pm

      Thank you and I completely agreed with that!


  16. Dina October 1, 2014 / 4:57 am

    Lovely, lovely post! 🙂

    Beautiful photos, beautiful writing and reminds me of all the time I have looked outside the window of a plane while enjoying the beautiful weather outside.


    • YellowCable October 2, 2014 / 7:10 pm

      Thank you. I also like that too. It is another good break once in a while to look outside.


  18. blueinsomniak October 9, 2014 / 2:56 am

    The sky looks amazing. I don’t think I will ever see a view like that in my life because I am terrified of heights. I have never been on a plane so I will be satisfied just looking at your beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing.


    • YellowCable October 9, 2014 / 7:05 am

      Thank you and I am happy you like it 🙂

      I am also afraid of heights but as long as I am inside (planes or buildings) that I do not have come to contact with open space then I am ok (just a little bit nervous if you start thinking about how high you are at :)).


      • blueinsomniak October 9, 2014 / 7:10 am

        Even being inside, I couldn’t do it. I can’t bring myself to ever get on a plane. I would literally have to be drugged or knocked out. I can’t even stand on a chair to change a light bulb. That’s pretty bad. Don’t you think? For now, I will just enjoy your photos and imagine that I was there. 😉

    foto incantevoli! le nuvole viste dall’aereo hanno sempre qualcosa di molto speciale, sembra di viaggiare nello zucchero filato, ò ed anche si può pensare che laggiù sulla terra sia tutto bello e felice…o meglio si vorrebbe sperare che lo fosse!
    Grazie mille amico, passa un sabato felice

    I love the photos of the clouds. Absolutely lovely.
