The Philippines has a wide variety of landscapes, and what better way to see them all than from a plane.
Almost every trip I’ve taken over the past two years had me flying to and from my destinations in the dark. Finally, our flights to Cebu had us coming and going both during the day allowing us to actually see what we were flying over and take some of those beloved airplane window shots.
As it turns out, the country was just as stunning from the air as it was from on the ground. Before physically traveling there, I really didn’t know what kind of scenery we’d be seeing. Other than some beaches and the Chocolate Hills, as I had no idea what to expect. Parts of our flight had us feeling like we were flying over the Maldives, and we oohed and ahhed at the different hues of blue in the ocean below.
As we flew past at least a dozen different islands, and our eyes constantly scanned below, looking at the shapes of the different coastlines. It was as if we were looking for something we’d recognize, that would tell us where we were, even though we knew nothing would.
From cloud-shrouded mountains to the flat orange roofs of the local houses, the scenery we saw was constantly changing. As we slowly descended we found our eyes continually glued out our window waiting to see what new views would come into our narrow field of vision.
So rather than me rambling on more about what the Philippines looked like from above, I thought I’d let my photos do the talking instead. Enjoy!
