A window seat of a descending airplane is a pretty good vantage point for a landscape shot or “sweeping panorama.” Even a bleak one. I took this a year ago as we approached an airport in America’s heartland.
Every time I fly, I look for baseball diamonds as the plane descends. It makes me happy to see evidence of America’s pastime, even when the fields are covered in snow.
I cropped a row of scrub trees from the bottom of the original (below), since they were distracting and not all that attractive. Some sharpness is lost, but the crop gives the baseball diamonds more prominence. Now, can baseball season please get here?
