Last week I took a flight from Ahmadabad, India through Dubai to my hometown of San Francisco. My bones were stuck in economy class and the only thing to do was watch movies, dream of wide open spaces and take photos of the ground below. Fortunately the view from the window seat is a spectacular one and the shots documented the flight with the unique colors of the Asian plains, the North Pole and Canada from its cruising altitude.
India and Dubai and San Francisco are of course on opposite sides of the planet, so the route went according to the Great Circle, directly over the top of the planet and down the other side. Such as you see below.
Any geographic blank spots are due to cloud cover or to the photographer being asleep. So there.
