Although most of my aerial images are of building in the city, there's much more to see besides the city itself. When flying from the FLYNYON hangar in New Jersey to NYC, you spend a decent amount of time over the harbor before you get downtown. This time is mostly utilized by the Statue Of Liberty and your first look at the skyline from above but there's much more going on underneath you.
On the last few flights I took, I spent more time looking straight down rather than ahead. To me, this is way more interesting than anything else. Looking directly down on the tops of buildings and city streets is a perspective you literally can't get anywhere else. I did the same when it came to that minute where we fly over the water to get to the city and there are tons of boats floating around so I shot photos of a few. Even though this was probably the fastest of them all, I was able to get it center of the frame for this cool look. If anyone plans on taking a FLYNYON flight, take full advantage of every moment! Even the ones that seem less interesting might pull through for you.
Here is a bonus photo of what I probably looked like as I was getting this shot:
