When I was in Namibia I took a flight with a small Sessna with the intention of taking some aerial pics of the Namib Desert.

I took this flight from the city Swakopmund. It was about 1.5 hours to and fro.

In hindsight this flight was a bit too long. Those small planes are so uncomfortable!

The worst part were the windows! they were all scratched an battered up. Most of my shots were not usable at all.

Some had funky colors because of the reflection with the windows of the plane, others were unsharp.

Anyways I managed to get some shots I was happy with.

Next time (if and when) I'm in Namibia I will opt for a flight with a hot balloon... no windows!
