A landscape photographer's tour
London to Seattle
Keith's travels in the Pacific Northwest - September-October 2007
Flying out to Seattle at the start of a driving tour of the Pacific Northwest.
Although the 'real' pictures start in following day's pages, I was struck by the quality of the photos I was able to get from the plane window as we flew over Greenland and parts of the US.
The weather isn't at its best this time of the year, but I do enjoy driving along the Pacific Coast Highway, and particularly the Oregon coast. These pages will have a few of my pictures along the way. I'm not on my own this time so I'll probably not be keeping quite the detailed notes I usually do... :-)
Ok, just travelling today...
Flying out to Seattle via Chicago, so the first leg of the trip went over the tip of Greenland
However, before even getting on the the plane I discovered new parts of the Heathrow departure lounge
Here's Karen (who I'm travelling with this time) checking out the duty free...
Anyway, having stocked up with Malt Whisky for the trip, off we went...
What you can see of Greenland, looks pretty mountainous.
This from 40,000 feet
While there was plenty of room on the flight to Chicago, the one to Seattle was pretty packed
However, it was clear most of the way across the States, and we managed to get photos of one of my favourite mountain ranges (from 38,000 feet).
The mountains to the right of Jackson lake are the Tetons.
Why one of my favourite mountain chains? From the ground they look like this
