Sao Paulo at Night
When I remember back these many flights I’ve taken in the past, there is nothing else than the spectacular views of the world below the airplane that remain in my memory; views which we are not able to see from the ground.
Enjoy the view of the world outside the airplane window as I've seen and captured it with my camera.
I’ve taken this photo during the night flight from Sao Paulo to Lima (on board of Taka International Airlines Airbus 319 airplane) from an altitude of appr. 7,000m a.s.l. (airplane still climbing to cruising altitude).
You can see a part of Sao Paulo, highway Via Laterar da Rod Pres Duta (light dots along the dark area), Parque Ecologico (dark area)and well lighted power supply substation (bottom left) at night.

This is the first time that I see a picture by night about Sao Paulo.
Exactly a satellite image with all the small light point beneath on the earth.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

in facts it has a bit of haze as you comment. But I like the many light spots over this black surface as many fireflies! Great note about São Paulo, I really like that city!

Countless dots that pop up through the darkness. Very creative moment. Makes me to take a pencil and associations.

a fascinating night view of a great city from the aeroplane. It looks like a starry sky, too. The framing is excellent. Congrtulations for capturing all these luminous dots so steadily. Thank you!
All the best, have a good evening,

View of city lights from high-flying airplane like cosmos, billions of stars and galaxies. Also I like this view. Rare shot of the TE.

La grandezza di una grande città è di notte che la guarda.
Le luci dei palazzi e delle strade ....il cielo .
Si in aereo e sembra che guardi l'infinito.

Une prise nocturne spéciale comme des confetti dans le fond sombre, belle réalisation

I'm used to see stars in the sky but not that much on such a small area!
Those diamonds laid on a black velvet tissue are worth a fortune and prompt cupidity!
Appealing experience indeed!

You captured a wonderful sea of lights here, an impressive view of a wonderful city. It has never occured to me to take shots from a plane like this, but looking at your gallery and what you have achieved, I will try it next time I am airborne!

Hi MIro !!
this is a very original idea..... although you could have told us that the city below is Berlin, or Roma or even the Milky Way.... we would have believed you !!!!!
have a nice week end.

Millions of bulbs lithened the dark town, Miro, wonderfully taken from high above.
Perfect shutter speed, and fine clear shine of the illuminations.
Have a nice new week,

it is ever fantastic to see sÃ£o Paulo from the sky, in some aspects part of its defects are less evident seen from the air, specially at night.
