When we launched the In Flight picture category, we never thought to find something that impressive.
On groung to ground pictures, more than 300 km. is considered as an exceptional sight, but here we are talking about more than 500 km.
Absolutely a distance that is difficult to imagine.
On the Author’s words:
This photo was taken from a plane, flying over West France, near Bordeaux, 15 m. before the sun rises.
I used Generate a Panorama web, to identify the mountains and calculate the distance to Montblanc, aprox. 538 Km. away.
With the naked eye the MontBlanc highligths in the horizon.
This kind of photos could only be taken few minutes before the sun rise.
