I’ve been busy admiring the scenery of Glendalough from above recently, but have been lucky enough to have taken in several wonderful views around the world from above. First up, the lovely city of Seattle at nighttime, taken from the top of the Space Needle.
A rainy day on the via Condotti in Rome, taken from the top of the Spanish Steps.
It is only from above that you can truly appreciate how much of Manhattan is taken up by Central Park – this is the jaw-dropping view looking north from the Top of the Rock.
One of my favourite views of all time, flying over the Alps with my nose pressed up against the window, watching those amazing mountains spread out for miles like the stippled icing on top of a Christmas cake.

This above all; to thine own self be true. – William Shakespeare
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. – Edward Abbey
