Monday (28-March-2011) — California to New Jersey

Gone to See California. Day 9: Return Flight from San Francisco to New Jersey. Aerial Views from Across America.

I took a number of images while flying back from San Francisco to New Jersey after attending a four-day Photography Workshop in Death Valley lead by Michael Mariant.  For this flight I did have a window seat, and a GPS to record locations (when above 10,000 ft). I like taking images with a Leica V-Lux 20 and X1 camera while flying rather than a much larger DLSR. The first images are of Mono Lake in eastern California. The first with the X1, and the second with the V-Lux 20.

Aerial View of Mono Lake from 36,000 feet and 27 miles during a commercial flight from San Francisco to Newark. Image acquired with a Leica X1 (ISO 100, 24 mm, f/6.3, 1/1000 sec). Processed: Capture One 6 Pro (raw conversion, haze reduction), Photoshop CS5, Focus Magic (sharpening), Nik Define 2 (noise reduction), Photoshop CS5 (save for web). (David J Mathre)
