The View From Above

Updated On:

Yesterday, we flew back to the States for a work seminar, which starts tomorrow.  Fortunately, we were able go back a day early so I could grab my car from Pennsylvania; to be able to drive it up to Connecticut for the seminar.

The route our plane took us gave us some breathtaking views, with the sky still alight during the nautical twilight.  The first noteworthy portion highlighted some beautiful clouds and cloud patterns below us.

Then we flew over the bottom of Greenland: the coastline speckled with little icebergs, which contrasted with the majestic fjords jutting up from the water’s edge.  Seriously stunning.  I did a tad bit of research, and even though most of Greenland is flat, there is a narrow area of rocky mountainous coastline along the eastern shore.  These peaks and cliffs are called the Watkins Range, with the highest mountain being Gunnbjorn’s Fjeld, which is the highest point in the Arctic at 3,694 meters (12,119 ft).

I took a ton of pics and wanted to share some with you.  I do LOTS of flying for work, but this was one of the most picturesque flights I’d ever taken.

I hope you enjoy my photos!  (You can click on the individual photos to see them enlarged.)


The first few photos are of the gorgeous cloud patterns over the ocean:



Next, we have Greenland!  How amazing!  We were at full cruising altitude, which means these mountains must be huge!


Then, we came in over Canada, always chasing the twilight side of sunset.

  1. Hi Jen and Milos. Hi from Ireland. My wife and I are part time naturists who enjoy nude swimming after a nice hike. We do this often in Ireland all year around and also when on holiday in Europe. Really enjoyed your videos of beautiful remote Croatian nude beaches and your honest and funny commentaries. Please keep them coming. If interested you can join in International Naturist Federation (INF) open group on FB. And do let us know if you are ever in Ireland and we will happily recommend some beautiful nude beaches

    • Thanks, Colin! Always glad to hear about other folks enjoying the nude beaches for what they actually are! I suspect it would be rather chilly to swim in Ireland – please correct me if I’m wrong! Haha! Glad you’re enjoying our videos! 🙂
