Photo: Take off from Montreal last June, flying 'home' Time 15 to 9 pm..due North over Quebec towards Greenland and the Atlantic; destination Amsterdam, by our KLM,at 33.000 feet.

Mais..je t'aime Quebec aussi.. ..alors..Quebec .. je reviens!
Writing all this..and thinking of the word 'LOVE'..being a fan for over 40 years of Charles Aznavour.. 2 of his songs I like most..
*Emmenez-Moi* and... Et Pourtant!
Bye Folks : John T

Et pourtant
(Charles Aznavour)


Un beau matin je sais que je m'éveillerai
Différemment de tous les autres jours
Et mon coeur délivré enfin de notre amour
Et pourtant, et pourtant
Sans un remords, sans un regret je partirai
Droit devant moi sans espoir de retour
Loin des yeux loin du coeur j'oublierai pour toujours
Et ton coeur et tes bras
Et ta voix
Mon amour

Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant

J'arracherai sans une larme, sans un cri
Les liens secrets qui déchirent ma peau
Me libérant de toi pour trouver le repos
Et pourtant, et pourtant
Je marcherai vers d'autres cieux, d'autres pays
En oubliant ta cruelle froideur
Les mains pleines d'amour j'offrirai au bonheur
Et les jour et les nuits
Et la vie
De mon coeur

Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant

Il faudra bien que je retrouve ma raison
Mon insouciance et mes élans de joie
Que je parte à jamais pour échapper à toi
Dans d'autres bras quand j'oublirai jusqu'à ton nom
Quand je pourrai repenser l'avenir
Tu deviendras pour moi qu'un lointain souvenir
Quand mon mal et ma peur
Et mes pleurs
Vont finir

Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Et pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi
Pourtant, pourtant, je n'aime que toi...

Another georgous aviation shot simple extreme light and shape but beautiful.

Hey John,

And now, for your arrival in Quebec, here is a real "Québécois" song that talks about planes ;)

LINDBERG by Robert Charlebois ;-)

"Des hélices
Astrojet, Whisperjet, Clipperjet, Turbo
A propos chu pas rendu chez Sophie
Qui a pris l'avion St-Esprit de Duplessis
Sans m'avertir

Alors chu r'parti
Sur Québec Air
Transworld, Nord-East, Eastern, Western
Puis Pan-American
Mais ché pu où chu rendu

J'ai été
Au sud du sud au soleil bleu blanc rouge
Les palmiers et les cocotiers glacés
Dans les pôles aux esquimaux bronzés
Qui tricotent des ceintures fléchés farcies
Et toujours ma Sophie qui venait de partir

Partie sur Québec Air
Transworld, Nord-East, Eastern, Western
Puis Pan-American
Mais ché pu où chu rendu

Y avait même, y avait même une compagnie
Qui engageait des pigeons
Qui volaient en dedans et qui faisaient le ballant
Pour la tenir dans le vent
C'était absolument, absolument
Absolument très salissant

Alors chu r'partie
Sur Québec Air
Transworld, Nord-East, Eastern, Western
Puis Pan-American
Mais ché pu où chu rendu

Ma Sophie, ma Sophie à moi
A pris une compagnie
Qui volait sur des tapis de Turquie
C'est plus parti
Et moi, et moi, à propos, et moi
Chu rendu à dos de chameau

Je préfère
Mon Québec Air
Transworld, Nord-East, Eastern, Western
Puis Pan américan
Mais ché pu où chu rendu

Et j'ai fait une chute
Une kriss de chute en parachute
Et j'ai retrouvé ma Sophie
Elle était dans mon lit
Avec mon meilleur ami
Et surtout mon pot de biscuits

Que j'avais ramassé
Sur Québec Air
Transworld, Nord-East, Eastern, Western
Puis Pan-American
Mais ché pu où chu rendu"

See you, Claudine

Fantastic, breathtaking view!

~Hugs!~

Fortunately that you added the words of Aznavour, because this image leaves me speechless! The paradise must look like that. Congratulations! Annie

Salut John,
Quelle belle lumière ! C'est magnifique. Le réacteur crée le contexte, le ciel s'occupe du reste. J'adore cette composition. Bravo !
Ivan

Bonjour John,
nice compo and perfect exposure that give nice colors. Is it the altitude or the 18 mm that give the horizon a circle arc? Congratulations (for your shot and for your french)!

You do these aerial shots so well John. Good colour and detail and the curvature of the earth quite visible. Charles was one of my favourites too. TFS,
Dave

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Woolmer's Estate’

Hi John,

Beautiful and vivid colours you managed to capture at 33.000 feet! By including the engine you framed it perfectly!

Well seen & composed
Constantinos

Wonderful colors, and a nice seat over the wing. I tried a few times to catch such a scene, but it never quite worked out.
Yeah, I can hear Charles - now what about Edith Piaf?
Cheers

Hi John

Nice angelic shot. You should have asked the pilot to get rid of the motor (only joking).

Thanks for your comments and smilie on my photo " Silent Night " :o)

John, trop beau les couleurs, je revois ce que j'avais pu admirer pour la première et dernière fois lors de mon seul vol en avion. Un de plus beau moment de ma vie.
Donc tu salueras de ma part, le Québec, et fais-nous de superbes photographies et tu salueras les fidèles amis que tu rencontres à chaque fois là-bas. Et passes de bonnes fêtes avec ta fille qui habite là-bas.

Désolée d'être si bavarde, amitiés, Corinne

John, this is a stunner. Well done

Good aerial shot of the sunset, with a marvellous warm vs cold color opposition. Excellent sharpness for an image shot through perplex. Tfs!

WOW, John!

I'm just curious, did you do any PP work..?

Best regards, Daniel

Very nice photo with a colorful and strong composition. Sometimes being in a plane you get lucky. This happened to me too once.

Andre'

Great shot taken from the airplane. It is difficult to get such shots, as usually it is either very cloudy outside, or very clear but nothing in view except blue sky. Here you were lucky to get the setting sun on the clouds which makes a marvellous sight. The colours are beautiful and I love the curve of the horizon, showing what great distances you can see from the air.
Cheers Joan
