An impressive birds eye view, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It was an impressive bird,Ray. smile Thanks.
great view from up there and perfectly captured. i always try to keep my camera handy on such occasions but have rarely got a good shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ayush,yes, I've learned to keep my camera handy,but as you say you have to get lucky. I'll post some I took over America sometime.
This is great! I love all the little boats too... worked well, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Ell', more to see than when you fly into Manchester! smile
That's a fantastic capture out of the window Frank... i like the wake from the boats... the 747 must have been in a banking turn to get this angle....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter,I think it was,it's an interesting flight path into Heathrow,as you may discover! smile

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Shane,I only just thought of it being Friday,not intentional,where do I pick up my prize? smile

Everything looks so small but quite intriguing to see a place you know well from the air Frank
Frank L Croston.: It is isn't it, Chris,you can't quite believe what you are seeing. smile

Excellent photo
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, 'V, a certain amount of luck involved. smile
Very impressive quality through the aircraft window, some years ago I did a shoot with Jason Hawkes the aerial photographer for a docklands client, went along the river in a helicopter which was great.
Frank L Croston.: I bet it was,John,I'm surprised I got anything considering the state of the window,which looked as if someone had had a go at it with a wire brush!
I do recognize things today. No questions.
Frank L Croston.: Good for you,Mary. smile Ask any time.
good photo through the window
Frank L Croston.: Miraculous considering the state of the window,Chantal. smile
I am impressed by the traffic on the River Thames Frank! Great capture.
Frank L Croston.: Probably busy,it being a Sunday, Richard. Thank you.
what a view Frank! great shot!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke,glad you like it.
It looks so different from up there, I used to walk about round that area during my last working years in London back in the late 70's.
Frank L Croston.: It must have changed a lot from back then,Brian, not somewhere I'm well acquainted with.

I have a similar scene over London taken about 5 years ago. Delve back in my archives if you can be bothered
Frank L Croston.: So you did,Richard,better quality too, it seems to be the regular flight path.

I remember that flight path well, but never got a shot as good as this! Waterloo looks particularly impressive!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mike,I was surprised I got this,considering the state of my window,cleaned with a wire brush I think! the ones in front, and behind me were fine,typical! smile
Great shot from the sky, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Tom,some consolation on coming back...smile
