I have just uploaded the first gallery (BA65 to Nairobi) in what will become a collection of images taken during my month in Kenya. In due course other galleries will be developed to show both the countryside where I was staying and the schools and children where I was doing voluntary work with Projects Abroad.
The first gallery reveals aspects of the outward flight starting from Heathrow with 4254 miles to go on the internal screen as we headed off. Despite the problems of shooting through the window the images follow our progress until the Day/Night Terminator caught up with us somewhere over Sudan or Ethiopia.
As all flights the weather is a factor in getting camera images. Fortunately we encountered little cloud until early evening when flying over Sudan or Ethiopa
The gallery takes the viewer from Heathrow and the M25 across the coast of England and then into Europe. The flight path took us over Germany not far from the city of Munich and then onward over the Alps: in particular the Eastern Alps. There the snow capped mountains seemed to roll out just like waves coming ashore. Down through Croatia and onward to Greece where we passed over the Gulf of Corinth. There is in image of the southern most point on Greece and then we flew out over Crete. There there was the last glimpses of a snow capped mountain.
Suddenly we emerged from the Mediterranean crossing the African coast in Western Egypt. Across the Western Desert still heading South where the landscape one lost eons before with obvious remnants of water courses flowing down from its highlands. The Nile is spotted and we crossed it close to Wadi Halfa on the Egyptian - Sudan border. Thereafter conditions deteriorated until all that was left was day and night in the same photograph. Enjoy the journey and watch out for more galleries in the not to distant future.
The locations depicted in the gallery are of course approximate and based upon the view screen provided by BA.
