I love taking pictures from the window seat (I always ask for and get a window seat). I recently flew from Los Angeles (LAX) to Washington Dulles (IAD). Here are some awesome pictures I took. The flight was on a United 757.

I was even more excited about taking these pictures as I had just bought my new Sony NEX3 DSLR. It sure beat the pictures I was taking so far with my BlackBerry 9700!

    VERY nice pics, thanks for posting. I absolutely love it when I have a window seat and snap some gems, as you have here. There’s just something so peaceful and reflective about gazing out the window on flights.

  2. unroadwarrior says:

    Thanks @Darren. Do share any pictures you have taken from your airplane windows.

  3. Chase says:

    Very nice photos. How do you get such crisp results? Do you clean the window before taking the photos?

  4. unroadwarrior says:

    The pocket squeegee I bought from Amazon is real handy ;)

    No I do not. I was lucky on this flight. I have had windows where they were too yucky to take pictures thru. Also, using a polarized light filter reduces any reflection off the window glass.

    Anyone ever give you a hard time for using electronics devices during takeoff/landing? I’ve done that a couple times with my DSLR, and am always worried about getting caught by some by-the-books passenger. Doubt a flight attendant would ever see anything though since they’re usually sitting during takeoff/landing.

    Nice pics btw….I especially like the Snow in June photo!

    Jon, I have not had any issues with other passengers about using my camera during takeoff and landing, so far at least.

    Glad you liked the pictures. I have many more to share.
