From the air the Côte d'Azur shows off its beauty from a different angle. From the vastness of the sea, to the busy built-up coast line, to the green rolling hills of the pre-Alps, introducing the snow-capped peaks of the French and Italian Alps.
Here's some pictures I took when flying as a passenger, my son piloting the plane:Here are some pictures of the French Riviera taken from an unusual point of view: while flying above the French Riviera.
There are various flying clubs in the region, the one that I use most often is the Cannes-Mandelieu flying club. The cameras used were either a Pentax SLR, iPhone or GoPro. It was not always possible to avoid the reflection in the windows of the plane, hope you don't mind!
