A View From The Window Seat

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

AirplaneI took the photo above while flying down to Louisville this year. It’s one of my favorite photos. I love how the clouds remind me of a beautiful calm ocean.

When flying I always try to get the window seat, unless I’m with the kids.  Flying is just incredible to me. Being so high up, in and above the clouds, is just breath-taking. And the clouds are amazing too. They can look like big puffy white marshmallows or they can be as flat as a field.

When there are no clouds I love looking at the land and watching the cars, roads, and houses for as long as I can. When they become too small it’s fun to look at the farms, lakes, and wooded areas that make up the landscape and wondering where exactly we are flying over.

I’d love to have a in-flight gps some day so we could follow the plane along and see what cities and states we are flying over.

The window seat has so much to offer, not only are the views amazing and even awe-inspiring at times, it’s also great for resting your head against when you need a little shut-eye too.

What about you? Do you prefer the window seat, aisle, or middle seat?

  1. The window seat is my choice! Seeing the clouds is an amazing sight!

  2. Olivia Rubin says:

    If the airline keeps their word, I am usually sat up front in Bulk Head with my Service Dog. She is a Labrador retriever. Then I try to take the window seat. I don’t care to look out, but that way when everyone boards the plane they don’t bend down and try to pet her or talk to her. I also prefer the window seat because it is good headrest to sleep with. But I am not picky, unless you stick me in the center…the I get my elbows out and claim the armrests!

  3. nice view!

  4. No I would not want to be near the windows. too scared

    I Love Flying Due To Views Like This In The Photo, Very Relaxing To Me !:)

  6. I love window seats!

  7. Sandy VanHoey says:

    I love the windows seat also. I didn’t even fly until I was almost 40 years of age. I was scared to death and had a window seat but ended up enjoying it. That’s a great pic!

  8. Emily W says:

    I like the window seat best for sure. It’s much easier to take a nap, and I feel like I have more privacy. I’m a little uncomfortable falling asleep in front of lots of strangers, it just feels weird to me.

  9. Clouds always look so solid, like snow, from up above, don’t they?

    • Sandra Beeman says:

      I too love the window seat. What a great shot of the Louisville clouds. I love the shapes and fluffiness of clouds high up in the atmosphere.

    I prefer the window seat. I have only been in a plane once and that was like 20 years ago. Thanks so much for sharing the picture. I forgot how pretty it is from a plane.

  11. Bethany says:

    What a beautiful view i love window seats.

  12. Looks like I am definitely in the minority. I much prefer an aisle seat. I feel stuck in a window seat and a bit cramped.

  13. Kathlean Owens says:

    On the few plane rides I’ve been on, I prefer the window seat.

  14. Stacey Schwerin says:

    Really beautiful

  15. Maralea says:

    I too love the window seat!

  16. Kiley P. says:

    Nice photo. I’ve actually never been on a plane before and I’d much rather see a photo than actually see it myself(I’m afraid of heights).

  17. Ellen B says:

    I don’t really fly but I would want the window seat

  18. Tina Barry says:

    This just makes me want to get on a plane and go anywhere! :)

  19. I have never been on a plane, but this is a great picture. I think I would have to sit away from the window, I am sure that would scare me.

  20. Robin Quick says:

    I love the window seat! I like looking out & seeing the beautiful clouds & landscape. Its just so breathtaking to see from the air!

  21. missy crace says:

    This is so pretty but Im a chicken to fly!!!

  22. Shaunna W says:

    This makes me miss flying so much! We haven’t had a vacation in 7 years.

  23. I have tried to get a photo like this while flying, but haven’t been able to. I always fight with the window glare.

  24. Jennifer V says:

    I definitely prefer the window seat! I also like to take cloud pictures, too!

  25. Flying always terrifies me but once the plane is in the air, I love having the window seat because the view is amazing!

  26. Michelle P says:

    I am generally an aisle seat kind of girl. I like to be able to get up without bothering anyone. The photo you took is really cool! Was it bumpy with all of that weather below you?

  27. Ellen B says:

    love the view

  28. Truthfully, I haven’t flown since the TSA started abusing their privileges with pat downs. The long waits in security just make me CRAZY!

  29. i always love the window seat because i enjoy looking at the pillowtop clouds. When I get tired, I can lay my head against the window/wall and nap. :)gina at hiyaluv dot com

  30. Sarah Hirsch says:

    i don’t really care where i sit on a plane, I am fine anywhere, just happy to be travelling!

  31. Janice Cooper says:

    I love riding in an airplane and the window seat is a must! It always amazes me being above the clouds in the daylight. I always marvel how God created such amazing things beyond our imagination. Good picture :)

  39. Tammy S says:

    Great picture! It looks so perfect. I love to have the window seat when I fly. It’s to bad that airlines are now charging extra for window and aisle seats.

  40. Lisa Brown says:

    Love the photo. I tend to shy away from the window seat because I just don’t want to look out and down :)

  41. Definitely the window seat.

  42. Stacy K. says:

  44. Ellen B says:

  45. And the window seats cause less motion sickness…which I get frequently!

  46. I can’t fly unless I have a window seat! :)

  47. It’s always fun to see the view from the window!

  48. I love the window seat!

  50. Betty Baez says:

    Oh my how beautiful! Post card worthy!

  51. I love to have the window seat. I love to look and see God’s beautiful creation. Just awesome!

  52. I always have to have a window seat – otherwise I feel closed in and get nauseous…that does not make flying fun. ;)

  53. The window seat! always!
