Snowy Scenes from My Window Seat

As I departed from New York City via LaGuardia airport a week ago or so, I snapped some quick photos from my smartphone.  Little did I realize how good the pictures would turn out (for a smartphone).  The flight took off in a westerly direction, crossed Manhattan and the Hudson River into New Jersey after which the turn south began…

If someone can identify any of the parts of NY/NJ shown in these pictures, I’d love to know!

Photo of the Week – The Grandiose Andes

The Andes viewed from the plane on a trip from Mendoza, Argentina to Santiago, Chile

The Himalayas sound remote and far away?  Well, the Andes are ALMOST as tall and with spectacular views too.

I dream of the Andes

You can take a VERY short flight from Santiago, Chile to Mendoza, Argentina (for peanuts if you buy the ticket in Chile) and you get this impressive view.  I fell in love with the view in 1991 and it took 19 yrs to see it again.  But I did.  God’s wonderful work on display!
