Flying in to Jakarta – Top views

6:10 pm | | Comments 6

Its always fascinating to capture a city from the sky while landing or taking off in a flight. More so when the city is new and the images give you a entirely new perspective of the city. Even if not that, it is still fun to have a top view. These images were my ‘Hello’ to capital Jakarta on my recent first ever visit to the Indonesia. And the results were certainly not disappointing – a warm welcome to a wonderful country – Wonderful Indonesia.

Sitting pretty! Clouds on their pockets of the islands!!


Lagoons and the beaches! Anticipation of nature’s bounty!!


A glimpse of the turquoise blue waters!


These white spots are the indication of a harbour nearby!


Truly enough, we close in to the port city!


The sea, the land and the air… all in the nature’s single frame!


Somebody else is coming to the city too, see there!!


Well, no flying race though but this Lion Air flight nosed ahead of our flight to the Jakarta Airport.


Finally our Malaysian Airlines jet reaches the mainland too!


The beautiful countryside of Jakarta!


The great divide- countryside on the left and city on the right of the highway!


…and Jakarta, here we come!!
