Flying from Vancouver to Reykjavik

Vancouver to Reykjavik, Iceland

Aerial photography from a commercial flight

Rarely have I had much luck snapping photos from a commercial flight, but that changed on our Vancouver - Reykjavik flight. Di tried something new and booked us an aisle and a window seat; hoping no one would book the middle seat. The plan worked and we had ample space on the 757 for our 8-hour flight. We left on June 18th, close to the summer solstice, translating to daylight for the entire flight. At 4:45 am we flew over the east coast of Greenland. The combination of beautiful weather and timing meant out of this world beautiful views of glaciers, mountains, and coastlines. An invigorating start to this leg of 5050 Travelog.
