Yesterday I flew back to Dubai from San Francisco. Throughout the fifteen hour serving spree, I sneaked chances to take photographs out the teeny galley windows. Icebergs! Fjords! The moon!

Iceburgs
A little-known Jewish family?

These are great pictures. The fourth one is my favorite, although I really like the sixth one as well.

And those are my favorites as well. And the fifth. Did you like the fourth for the single-file fleet of icebErgs?

Why not "burGHs" (as in "Pitts") ?

Spectacular, Sq!

What camera are you using now?

Y.O.M.

It's a Nikon this time! Coolpix P6000. Lots of neat features... we'll show you in person before too long. =)

The combination of the multihued horizon and ice-capped peaks worked really well.

Fabulous! You need to keep doing these aerial shots of the earth from above.

Reminded me of Arthus-Bertrand's photos: http://earth.google.com/earthfromabove/

New aircraft perhaps? The windows seem glassless;-) As compared to the heavily scratched windows I have come across.

You know by mistake I clicked the camera icon for the next a/c and saw a Emirates Sky Cargo 747;-)

Well it is so new that there are only two photos of this tail number on airliners.net.
