Blue Sky over Oyo

It's so good to be back. Photo blogging truely does help your art (and photography too, whatever you choose to call it).

This is a shot I took during my approach to Murtala Mohammed Airport , Lagos, Nigeria last month. I've been doing a lot of travelling of late and never feel the need to take my camera out of the bag whenever I go. This time I made every effort to. I chose a seat very close to the front where the wing wouldn't obstruct the view (for those wondering how I was able to get this).

This shot was taken right over Oyo State.

First of all congrats on not getting a wing seat! Next I love it, the colours are great and I like the abstractness.
