I was flying from Dubai to Istanbul. As I looked out of the window out of curiosity, I was mesmerized for some time. Could not make out what I was seeing down.Clouds or land or what was this. Never in my life had I seen a snow-capped mountain as the bird flys. it took me some time to realise - Wow this is ice over mountains. I ran to the monitor of my seat to check the place out on the moving flight path. Thought of asking a flight steward. No one knew...We were flying over Azerbaijan.Some city I do not remember.
Whenever, we see anything amazing....we tend to think...how we are going to describe others what I saw.Who all to share...and ofcourse regret that our loved ones missed it. There is a momentary anxiety.I guess, cameras are created for these moments.
I shot this picture through the window with my Olymp FE-310 and did some PS to make it presentable.
No Great Photography but hope you guys like it.
