FLYING TO MELBOURNE

As I travel quite a bit for work, I often experiment with taking photographs from the plane. Some work, some don't, but it's always worth the effort when one snaps an occasional photo where things are right. This is taken on a flight back to Melbourne from Sydney, approaching the City from the Northeast. I am not sure exactly where this lake and township are, but it's about 30 minutes flight out of Melbourne.

As we have had a couple of fairly wet summers (thank you La NiƱa!) the countryside is lush and green and most of the water reservoirs are quite full. One always admires such beautiful vistas from up high, the green below complemented by the blue sky above and with a few fluffy clouds thrown in for good measure.

This post is part of the Skywatch Friday meme.
