Coming in for a Landing by taffy

Coming in for a Landing

Arriving on Beaver Island in the midst of widespread fog, so for the first time ever, approached from the west ("our" side of the island). The pilot told us there was too much fog to cross the island so went around it. Not much autumn color yet and lots of fog and rain.
Oh my word, that does look bleak. Interesting shot nevertheless.

Beautiful landscape shot

What a shame the autumn colours haven't arrived yet with all those trees!

Not much room for manoeuvre on the landing strip.

Lovely rolling fog across the island there. Not long til tha Autumn colour comes methinks. I love seeing land from above, I can imagine I am a bird in flight and this is my world spread below.

It's so hard to get really good images out of a plane window but you have done it here

Just checked out some info about beaver island, a very interesting history. Nicely captured shot.

Beautiful shot. The airport really stands out amongst the forest.

Wow, what a view. Beautiful shot.

What a beautiful view - hope you can go back when the colors come

A stunning capture and wonderful scene.

Wonderful aerial capture

You are back on the island so soon. I hope it wasn't specifically to see Autumn colours. Ours are in full flow here now. This time last year we were packing for our trip to New England, where the colours of the season were peculiarly absent for our visit. Hope you get improved weather on the Island for your stay.

Beautiful view, must be amazing when the trees are having their autumnal colours
October 6th, 2018  
Your weather looks worse than ours. I hope you a good time

Are you there to close up for winter? Or will you manage another stay there before the year end? So interesting for you to fly in from this direction. Hope the fall colours come soon.

My is that water ever turquoise. It looks like the Caribbean. Like seeing the fog in the distance

Terrific approach capture :)

Great pov. Nice tones and clouds.

It's great to see what Beaver Island looks like!

How wonderful to see an aerial shot of Beaver Island. It looks beautifully forested - and I love the way the houses are so tucked away in the bush.

@pamknowler It's close-down weekend, sadly. Garden pulled up, furniture put away, cabinets and refrigerator emptied, etc. We were both saying 'we're getting too old for this' yesterday, but we love it up here so will likely keep doing it awhile!
October 7th, 2018  
What an up-close-and-personal view!
October 7th, 2018  
Cool picture.
October 7th, 2018  
I can only imagine how beautiful it must look once the leaves start to turn!

I love the view of the land from an airplane. It's good you were able to get in- even with the fog. Makes for a nice, moody shot of the landing strip.

Nice capture.

Beautiful scene.
