East to West

East to West, New York to California, and me shooting out the window with my little Sony RX100 all the way.  Leaving JFK we continued in a southwest direction, which gave a nice view of Manhattan in the distance.  PLEASE CLICK ON EACH OF THESE TO SEE MORE DETAIL.

A little further along, after passing Brooklyn we got a great view of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.  This bridge is 13,700 feet long, 700 feet high, and when it was completed in 1964, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world.

These are cumulus clouds, in the vicinity of Wheeling, West Virginia.  I am amazed at the similarity of the clouds to each other.

This is the Colorado River, which separates the states of Arizona and Nevada - the state line runs right down the center of the river.

And we are now on final approach to Los Angeles International Airport.  Man, these houses go on forever.  There are sure a lot of people living in Los Angeles!

I decided to take a closer view of the houses as we got closer to the ground while approaching the airport.  So there you go, a coast-to-coast view of our trip.

I clicked on these and WOW!! These photos are phenomenal!! I love the one of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge! What a terrific view of how it sits and crosses the water. Also love the picture of the Colorado River where we are looking at two states and how the border is so defined by the river and then the clearly visible terrain. Love the first photo too of the aerial of NYC! How crowded that small piece of land is. Great photos! Trace

Wow. I agree with Trace on these wonderful photos. When you think the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge built in 1964, it is truly a wonder. They are all great photos. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you both for the kind words. I realized I had more than one interesting photograph from the trip, so decided to post the series. Glad you liked them!

Love the two photos of Manhattan and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The Colorado River looks so small - It's all in the perspective. Incredible to see so many houses all "smooshed" together in L.A. Great combination of photos!! betsey
