More sky shots

A few more sky shots that I liked. These were our last sight of Australia. Looking at the atlas when I got back, I was able to work out where we were.

First shot is of Pender Bay in the north of Western Australia

Next is a beautiful bay called Thomas Bay and the little northern township of Lombardina.

Finally Cape Leveque with Curlew Bay at the top and Catamaran Bay and Cygnet Bay on the right.  The sea area on the right is King  Sound. Such isolated places, but just a hop across the Timor Sea to Indonesia

  1. Nice aerial shots. Must be better landing than leaving such an interesting place. - Margy

  2. I love flying over recognisable places. You can see that the people who came up with the maps knew what they were doing - things really are that shape! Not so amazing these days I suppose, but I'm impressed by how accurate the maps drawn by early explorers were, when they had no prospect of seeing things from above.

  3. Neat photos! The second one has a partial heart shape.

  4. Beautiful aerial shots...the WA coast really is spectacular (and that's from a Queenslander living in the Territory).
