Chile by Air: Pacific Ocean off the coast of Colchagua in central Chile

This week’s Photo Challenge theme just popped up in my email: Ocean.
Ah! In Chile that’s a piece of cake! Here’s a favorite, taken from a small plane over the Pacific Ocean just off the coast of Colchagua in central Chile.

This shot is from an older post with other aerial shots taken from a small propeller plane during a working trip to the Colchagua Valley. See the full post at: Chile by Air (and the coolest job in the world).

  1. Great photo. On my next life I’ll be a pilot. Nothing in this whole entire world makes me feel better than being up there with the birds, and the clouds.

  2. Thanks… and couldn’t agree more about high in the sky! I have no problem with vertigo and just love having a bird’s eye view!

  3. A birdseye view of the ocean 🙂 Great picture

  8. Lovely photos. One spelling correction: the name of the town is Bucalemu.

  9. Thanks Esti-(for the comment AND the correction!) I fixed the Bucalemu mistake in the Chile by Air post (can’t believe no one has pointed that out before!)
