Plane views: Baffin Island, Canada

I was determined to stay awake on my recent flight from Amsterdam to Seattle. I’ve flown this route many times before but this was the first time that I had my camera right next to me, in the hope of getting some good shots of the icy lands of Greenland and northeastern Canada. The weather was great, the sky was clear and my decision to stay up was rewarded. The flight route took us past Iceland, Greenland and across to Baffin Island in Canada. The aerial views of the mountains, ice caps and frozen shores of Baffin Island were simply stunning!

    Wow gorgeous pics! I always try to stay awake to see the view but end up falling asleep everytime. I think I have flying-narcosis

    Gorgeous. I did the same when we flew from Calgary-London just a couple weeks ago and caught the sunrise over Greenland. Well worth staying up for 🙂

    Hahaha, glad I stayed up for it. I slept for about an hour when the plane flew over the Canadian prairies as I wanted to get up again for the flight over the Rockies! Consequence: arriving in Seattle feeling and moving like a zombie! 😉

    Great shots! I’m impressed you stayed awake on such a long flight to capture these.
