New York Flight pictures, November 2004

Something different. I need to go for business to New York. I do not have time for sightseeing but I took my camera with me for some pictures out of the airplane.

I took some nice pictures but in particular the good view while approaching Berlin was spoiled by backlight of the sun. For getting better pictures I need to take this kind of pictures in the evening.

Lufthansa managed to assign the same seat to both of us. Nice trick which created some entertainment while changing the airplane in Frankfurt
Cloud formations between Berlin and Frankfurt. The small bright spot is a lake reflecting the sunlight
Sunrise over Rotterdam. The yellow patches are green houses with light on
River valleys filled with morning fog
