Hello friends in TL,

A shot at Mount Jerai, the highest peak in Kedah. The shot was taken from the window seat a few minutes after the take-off from the Alor Star heading for Kuala Lumpur.
In CS3, some cloning was carried out to clean the dirt from the windows the shot was captured. Thanks for viewing.

Hi Junsi,
Great shot of this mountain, the pov is a unique one from the airplane. The clouds hovering over the mountain is a testament to its size. Nice detail, specailly since shooting from a plane. Nice work Junsi.

Hello Jusni,
An attractive view from way up high. Good to include a wing to balance the image. Best regards, Danilo

hi Jusni

Comparing your Boeing 737-400 to my workshop of Airbus A320-200, both taken by Nikon D80 and kit lens, what can we draw parallel?

Hazy sky aside. Definitely you will see less developed road network over a larger land area in Sarawak.

tfs, bill

Hi Jusni,

Great capture.
Amazing view.

Well done.


Hello Jusni,

That white little cloud is well exposed, and makes an eye-catcher!
It is always interesting to look at landscapes from above as the perspective is so different from this angle...
Good details in this nice composition!

Hi Jusni,

It's not common to be able to view a mountain from an airplane for us folks. So this view will be very unique for me. I guess it is just slight bad luck that it happened a rather misty/foggy day when you took this shot. I could just barely see the mountain and I was just thinking how brilliant if the weather was on your side when you took this shot. Still is a great photo nonetheless.



Assalamualaikum Jusni,
Nice scenery from and airplane, overlooking the Gunung Jerai, which was partly blanketed by clouds. Must be a nice mountain for photo trekking I guess.

Hi Jusni

A good aerial view of Kedah. The solitary white cloud adds superb graphism. Good sharpness & pov, including the aircraft wing at left. Tfs!

Hi Jusni,

great perspective! Amazing view!


Hi Jusni,
The wings of the plane added a nice aerial perspective along with the clouds. Looks like you still have plenty of jungles left there but slowly being encroached by the plantations as shown in the right of the image. Well captured and composed with good image quality ... nice job cleaning up the dirt in the window. Well done! tfs

Hi Jusni,
Awsome shot-you've managed to get so many elements-the mt, wing, clouds, buildings, roads..and with such clarity. Wonderful job!. Your PP is also pretty neat.
Best Regards,

Hello Jusni!
Great view! Nice perspective! Beautiful weather, colors and details!
TFS, Best regards, Zorica

this cloud looks like some kind of animal, ;)

hello bro Jusni,

awak clalu dapat window seat kat sayap? :) beautiful capture la bro.. tak nampak pon reflection dari tingkap or shadow.. cantik pemandangan kat bawah tu.. esp. the low lying clouds dekat gunung kamu tu.. well seen and taken.

regards, terry

Assalamualaikum Jusni,

the problem with taking a shot from an airplane is the dirty window especially with the ageing aircraft. while reflections can be avoided or reduced, nothing much we can do with the dirt in the window with 2 layers of screen.

believe me or not, i once saw a non-paying passenger in between the two layers of the window screens....a tiny cockroach!

membebel pulak dah...

about this picture, i wish one day you pass by Mt Kinabalu en-route KK-Sandakan or vice versa to capture the beautiful mountain.


Thanks for viewing my Parakeet & A Bunch of Frangipani

Hi Jusni,

Those airplane windows always seem diry, but you managed a great overview of the mountain and you had the perfect seat in the plane to include the wing.
Good composition.


NIce point of view you attained here Jusni. Well composed as well. Great work my friend.

Hello Jusni
You give us the best seat to admire the mountain! I have the stunning impression of viewing it on GoogleEarth software!!
Fine details despite the haze and the blur from pane.
Best regards.
I will leave on july 18 for 3 weeks.
