Sky Sunday – Both ways!

Last Sunday I posted, “Reach for the Sky” here on Virily from Ardmore airport. Now I have sea below, land below and sky in front. They say you can’t have it both ways but in a way in the air, the perspective does have it both ways.

This time, I go back to my first flying lesson and here is another view of the sky from the plane. 

In the distance is Rangitoto Island and we are flying over “Brown’s Island” all in the Waitamata Harbour.

“Waitamata!” means “Sparkling Waters!” often true of this place but today it is more luminous and the blues and greens merge.

It is always good to get another perspective, am I right?

What do you think?

    • Well you wouldn’t be the first who told me they didn’t like flying. I used to work on the electrical parts of aircraft a very long time ago, and when my friend and myself did our first landing lights, we were told, “Now you can fly in it!”
      We went up in a Bristol freighter and wore 2 overalls because it was so cold.
      They showed us a place where we could lie down and see the ground from the air through glass, it felt like there was nothing between us and the earth.

      It was a magnificent experience as we flew over the Southern Alps covered in snow. I wish I had a camera that day..

      I suppose flying could be frighting…
