Taken on my Way to LA, over Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California in the vast Southwest of the USA.

  3. I TOLD my husband that Texas was a desert forty years ago! :-) We moved here in 1976. These are incredible images from an airplane (or from anywhere). I like this group very much!

  6. Wow! What really cool shots… each so unique – glad you got a window seat. I’m particularly fond of the L.A. shot… and am busy identifying places. ~SueBee

  13. Wow! These look really great! We have only one type of landscape over here in the Netherlands. If you wink your eyes you’d miss it flying over. ;)

    • A little flat?

      January 14, 2014 at 1:01 pm

      • Yes, just a little… Hahahaha!!!
        But we have some kind of a mountain, just a very small one, but for us it’s something, in the booth of the Netherlands (Limburg)… ;)

  16. Nice perspective on your trip!

  17. That’s something different, you cannot see it daily. Thank you, Ron!

  18. I LOVE snapping pics from airplane windows! Such a unique perspective and the landscape is so amazingly diverse. You captured them well, Ron.

    • Thank you Lilly. I hope it hasn’t been too frigid up there.

      January 17, 2014 at 1:15 pm

      • Ron, it hasn’t been too bad. Yesterday we were blessed with some absolutely beautiful snow!

        January 30, 2014 at 12:28 pm

        • During the last two cold snaps there was no snow, but there was freezing rain.

  19. Thank you for liking “Fun Verticality.” These aerial shots are great. I saw some other aerial shots in color on your blog, but for some reason I like these black-and-white aerial photos more than the color photos. I think the wonderful textures and details of the photos in this gallery stand out more in black and white than they would in color. I also like the outer space feel of some of the photos in this gallery. Well done! :)

    • The choice of color or B&W depends on how much color is available vs how good the textures are without color.
