15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A small city from above

This was one of the coolest pictures I have gotten from a plane because everything looks like a real miniature. On my way to Zambia, our flight stopped in Dublin Ireland to fuel up. This was quite an unintentional shot because I just wanted to get a photo of the buildings and houses, but it ended up looking like was a miniature version of them. What actually happened here was that the angle I was taking the photo at just happened to be partially through the exhaust of the engine. So all the blurry areas are from the exhaust and the one clear area is where there is no exhaust.
