[September 14, 2013]

On our recent trip to West Point, Linda and I flew in and out of La Guardia Airport, which is located in Flushing, New York, on Long Island. (I have to say, it was quite an “experience.”)

As we departed for home at dusk, we had a wonderful view of Brooklyn below, and presumably of Queens and Long Island Sound (although we happily defer to anyone who knows the geography better than we do).

There are some great “airport/airplane” shots at JPG, but I liked what I was able to squeeze into this frame, and the setting sun was a big help, too. (No edit was needed.)

We know that you have other choices when surfing JPG so, as always, we’d like to thank you for choosing this page! Come back and see us again! (With apologies to Southwest)

    Great shot, Dick. It's tough to get a good window shot from a plane. Of course it helps that you weren't sitting over the wing. LOL!

    Magnificent composition of the tail of the Southwest aircraft AND the borough of Brooklyn and other boroughs below! Fascinating shot....I can study this again and again. I flew out of La Guardia on several occasions, but it was always dark, so I was limited to seeing lots of lights. This is fabulous, Richard!!

    I believe that's I-895 in the lower left and the Bronx River...So you'd be looking at the Bronx, NY.
