Sky-Watching over Seoul

Flying over Seoul, South Korea on my way to America in August.

These were taken about thirty minutes after take off from Incheon International Airport while the guy beside me was slurping over his noodle soup. The spicy aroma filled the cabin that made my mouth water, but listening to the slurps, I focused my attention outside the window instead. And wondered which direction North Korea was.:p

Guess what, I'm dreaming of going to South Korea. Probably a recency effect of my koreanovela marathon (i.e. Boys Over Flowers).

That;s why I always pick a window seat, to enjoy the great view! Happy clouds, happy flight!

I love these!! Beautiful shots from on high! For some reason I always forget to use my camera when I'm flying. The quote -- as Hilda noted, is funny, but all too true sadly enough!

Have a great weekend!

I enjoy the sky from planes. Your quote is fun to consider. The entire universe is in each breath, each cell, right here in the folks all around us.

Now you were travelling to faraway place to discover clouds that you can see only from a plane! Lovely puffs they were.

Marites said...

I like watching cloud formations while on a plane :) there are so much to see out there:) especially on a day. nice captures! my skywatch is here.

Don't you just love flying over the clouds? And I love it too when you can see the sun just rising (or setting).
