Silver Linings

As they say, all clouds have a silver lining. On my way back from Tanzania, my flight out of Amsterdam was delayed due to very high winds over Europe. Even once we were able to take off, the flight time was increased due to flying at reduced altitude into the wind. Sounds horrible, right?

Well, because of the chosen flight path and low altitude, this also meant that we would fly over Greenland and get a great view of the coast from a relatively low height. While this view only lasted a short time (with strangely no notice from the flight deck), I also happened to get lucky enough to look out my window at the right time to see it. And to have my camera ready to snap some photos out the plane window. The rough terrain was colored in silver and gold, giving me a quite beautiful view.
