In-between land, water, and clouds

San Francisco1

Once one amazing co-passenger told me, “Water looks beautiful if you look at it from land. The opposite experience is equal dull.” 

San Francisco2

I remember that line every time I go on a cruise. Still water from water- unappealing; landmarks and other bridges from water- dull. Water from land- I can stare for a thousand days without getting bored.

But from up above, the conclusion of water and land looks breathtaking. In between nature-made architecture and man-made wonders the grand landscape sits quietly for a picture. And no matter how many pictures I click, the city always manages to look perfect, picture-perfect. 

The pictures are of my favorite city San Francisco, on a sunny day, from a flight. I used my phone to capture the moment. Even though the clouds are the main protagonists here, let me know what else are more astonishing!

Happy Weekend, everyone!

  1. Hehe, I often take photos from the plane too. Even if the water can look dull from the plane, I took a liking to Japan’s second largest lake I saw from the plane (info was a courtesy from a Japanese passenger) and I definitely plan to go there next time. 🙂

    I liked how water looked when I was on the ferry to another island in Japan. https://thetravellersnotes.wordpress.com/2015/04/11/weekly-photo-challenge-afloat/

    But my photo for this challenge is from train – also in Japan. The river among the trees looked really gorgeous, but I don’t really know the name of the place I passed. 😦

    Cheers.

    1. I completely agree with you, Patrick. I can never be bored of the waves, waterfalls, and even still water, but I must see them from land. 🙂 I am sure it’s just our perspective. 🙂

So what do you think?
