Flying

We were the very last to get on a small plane taking us from Sochi to Saint Petersburg. Little did we know what was waiting for us up above. I took the window seat not expecting to see much, as there was a light drizzle landing on the plane. But as we took off, it became clear I had the best seat on the plane.

This photo is a finalist in the Natural World category of our 14th Annual Photo Contest. See all 70 finalists here.
