A couple of shots from a recent flight over Afghanistan I thought I'd share. These were taken with an Olympus Stylus Tough P+S, through a window but I think they turned out well none the less. Any comments or critiques more than welcome. If I get to do the flight again I think I'll find a way to carry my DSLR.

Welcome to CiC. Very rugged landscapes wonderfully captured. I hope to see more when you get your DSLR up there. On first glance at #1 I thought it was melting snow in a parking lot. But the second one puts it in context. Great shots.

Very interesting shots. Certainly not a view most of us get to see. I really love the first shot with the background fading to fog and the river or trail that winds though. Even though it is taken through a window I think the quality is there and I just love the mood. The terrain in the second shot is unlike anything I have seen before -it could be of another planet. It's a great shot also, but the first one is amazing under the conditions in which you were shooting.

Yes they have worked well, particularly the first one.
I'm assuming you were moving fairly fast at the time; which makes them even more amazing.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. The first shot with the river was also my favorite, I feel like everything lined up very well in that one. To help give some perspective on the size of the terrain, here's another shot of the same river, zoomed in. You can notice the small town and farm fields towards the left side of the picture.

Great perspective of a very rugged terrain.

Really nice shots. The quality is quite good despite being through a window and non-DSLR.
