The glory of landscape - flying from England over France

Flying is one of the best Geography lessons. These photos of France show geography from strip farming in the north, to lush fields and hedgerows to stark mountainous landscape. Flying is an adventure for everyone - the miracle of flight never ceases to amaze, but the variety of landscape is breathtaking. The following aerial photographs of France were taken from scheduled Easyjet flights cruising at 30,000 ft over central France. French geography becomes the most interesting subject!
