AMSTERDAM – I love to take aerial shots of mountains, that’s why I always request for a window seat despite the inconvenience of it — and I also always try to bring a camera. I will never forgive myself for not having a camera, when, on a flight to GenSan, I saw the full majesty of Mt. Apo flanked by Talomo, and with Matutum in front of it! Last year I had a great aerial shots of Bicol mountains (Hiking matters #184).
Yesterday, on my return flight from Milan – and just as the sun was about to set – I got great shots of the Alps, the great mountain range of Europe that straddles several countries and is home to some of the most famous mountains of the world: Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Jungfrau, among many others. It is a great consolation that even though I won’t get to hike during this trip, at least, I got to see the mountains!
They were truly beautiful!
