Back in January I made a number of New Year resolutions and I have been quite good at doing some of them while others, such as writing regular items for my blog, have been spectacular failures. Well who said it was going to be easy! Undaunted while there are still 5 months of the year remaining I will take up the challenge once more with a new post and as a double bonus (?) it’s on a non food topic!
This year my holidays came early with a trip to Portugal staying in a traditional Portuguese house in the centre of Olhão (an impossible name to pronounce which is rather embarrassing when people ask where you have been and after putting my face and vocal cords through a hideous series of contortions I usually settle for saying the Algarve, just to the east of Faro!
However, this blog is not about Olhão, although with its fabulous fish market it might well be, but instead it is about taking pictures from aeroplanes. I have always enjoyed flying and especially looking at the unfolding landscape below. So whenever when I fly my first choice of seat is for a window seat. All of the following images were taken with a Nikon D800 fitted with a Sigma 24 to 70mm f2.8 zoom. The camera was set to program mode and the following images are a selection of the shots that I took on the journey
The weather in Glasgow is rarely something to celebrate being one of the wettest cities in the whole of the UK but sometimes, even here, the rain stops and the sunshines especially this year and when it does you know why you continue to live in Scotland!
