Sky watch - or the other way around

How to watch the sky - and be watched at the same time? Follow me on a little trip:


We will be starting at Bergen Airport Flesland with this SAS Boeing 737. There is even a bit of blue sky in the background.


Just after take-off there is of course something highly interesting to watch on the ground: Part of the city centre of "my" town Bergen. Looking to the North we still see some sky.


After getting up to the cruising height, we fly towards the East and pass over Hardangerfjorden. In the background is Hardangervidda (a large snow covered mountain plateau) and we can see that we are approaching the clouds in the distance.

And while we are landing at Oslo Airport Gardermoen, we can see the tower where people are really watching the sky - and us.

Så kjapt har jeg aldri kommet meg til Oslo før! Veldig fine bilder:) Da jeg var liten husker jeg at det ikke var lov å fotografere fra fly. Men det var i begynnelsen av den kalde krigen...
Takk for turen:)

Glad to see that there were no clouds in Bergen... I remember that when I took off there many years ago, direction Trondheim, the clouds didn't allow to have this fantastic view of the city! The snow-caped mountains are stunning! Also loved the wonderful Fjord picture!

Great SKY tour! really enjoyed it --but of course, I loved the snow best of all!

Anemone said...

Kjempetøft !!

...og nå hørte jeg på radioen i går at det ikke lenger er helt trygt å fly pga at vi mennesker til en stadighet blir mer og mer overvektig.

Klem herfra.

Takk for turen. Gjett om jeg likte Hardangerbildet. Fjell og fjord, kan jeg be om mere.
Jeg luerer nesten på om du åpnet flyvinduet, for bildet over Bergen by var så utrolig klart og fint.

Dette var en knall SWF post!!
