I was very privileged last year to have clear skies as we flew over extraordinary desert landscapes on our way to Mexico City.
Wind-blown snow over the sand and rocks of a desert.I think this is the Colorado River but I can’t find anything quite like it in Google images.Here we were flying over red rock country, hot and arid.A dried-out river bed is sketched upon the land.I think this might be over New Mexico; the land looks like something out of a Georgia O’Keefe painting.A desert plateau in Mexico.For something completely different from these hot dry lands, my other trip last year, also with clear skies, flew over the polar route to Iceland and Denmark.

Magnificent dry landscapes…
THey were so beautiful; something you usually don’t get a chance to see from above.
Deserts are my favorite to take photos of. Your pictures are amazing. I don’t get to see the aerial views that often.
The aerial views were such a bonus on a really cheap flight to Mexico City – I think I had my camera on and my nose pressed to the window for the entire flight!
