The 19:30 flight from Mendoza...

The 19:30 flight from Mendoza to Santiago provides for some interesting colours as you pass Aconcagua. The South face is in the shade but you can't have it all. The flights from Santiago to Mendoza fly too far south to get close enough to shoot. December15, 2003. William Marler. Nikon Cool Pics 5000.

Re: I love aerial shots...

Thanks Dave. Normally I don’t try as the window of the plane and or the wing messes up the shot. But this seemed to go well at the time and the results surprised me. I have several more of the west ridge. Which I will post later. But I don't want to overdo it. Cheers William

Good drive by shot

Tupungato on the horizon (you are looking south by southwest)?

Re: Good drive by shot

I am looking north-north east. Tupungato would have been below the plane. I saw it on the way in and I have a shot with Tupungato, then Aconcagua the Ramada and Mercedario in the background. Cheers William

Fantastic Shot!

Wow, I can't believe that you took it through plane window which are usually scratched or dirty. This one was crystal clear and result is fantastic aerial shot! I hope you had great trip (haha like it can be the other way) and welcome back!
