Flying over Switzerland and managed a decent photo out of the window of a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Milano. The clouds cleared for just a few moments. Fast shutter, wide aperture and infinity focus

nice!! incredibly sharp and clean... especially considering that you took the pic from a plane! :) i love all the shadows, textures and contrasts here... although it's a lot to take in, it's not a very busy pic. good shot!!

Great picture, it almost looks abstract, but you got a good feel for the grandeur of the panorama you had in front of you. Beautiful!

Bravo David, C'est superbe ces montagnes vues d'en haut avec le brouillard qui semble les protéger comme du coton. Amicalement/jr

Wooow ! You have been very lucky. The mountaisn emerging from the clmouds are splendid and there seesm to be no track of the plane window.

Wonderful shot:)It looks fantastic as the peaks are getting over of clouds... This February I managed to fly above Switzerland (Basel-Zurich region), and I took some pictures too, but it was a little bit late, just before sunset...

Magnificent! Mountains are majestic by themselves. But the mist adds to their beauty. Good capture.
