Northwest Michigan from the air

Old Mission Peninsula, Michigan – aerial view

A clear summer day and a flight from Traverse City to Minneapolis provided amazing views of the Traverse City area, Leelanau Peninsula and the Manitou Islands.  It can be challenging to take pictures form the small window of a small commercial airliner but some turned out pretty decent.

The airplane took off towards the east and made a 180 degree left turn towards Lake Michigan.  It was already pretty high up when approaching the Lake Michigan coast so details and color of the scenery below are a bit dulled down by the haze in the sky.
