933. Looking Down

Night take-off...
points of light move
on a tiny grid.

Link with 932: City at night.

[I haven't taken a lot of trips by plane but a few of them involved take-offs and landings at night. When the plane flies over the city you can look down and see tiny car headlights as they stream along the network of roads illuminated by streetlights. The effect is most pronounced in the winter when there is snow on the ground everywhere and the light is reflected back into the sky.]

Seen those postcards totally black, and a tiny text:
"(name of the small place) by night."?

In another life I did a fair amount of flying. The view coming in on clear nights is always awesome. Another one perfectly captured.

I love flying late at night, or early morning. Nicely done, Vaughn.
