I took this while flying back from LA to Sacramento last spring. If you know the area, you can see the Golden Gate in the far distance and the mothball fleet in Suisun Bay.

That's a great shot! Normally these types of things turn out looking washed out and hazy, with bonus reflections and glare, but you got a good one here! Great color and reflection.

Wonderful! I hadn't realized what a wetland that is.

Thanks pichaser! No, I didn't use a filter. Frankly I was surprised the result came out this good. It is the first time I have used a good camera to take a photo from an airline window. I used the LR de-haze and clarity sliders, and brought up the exposure a little, and they had a pretty significant effect from the original.

I think the plastic window and the polarizer don't always work together ?

Probably not. I can't recall using a polarizer through any window for that matter. Modern windows have lowE coatings, multiple glass layers, etc. that might affect a polarizer.

Thanks bertwert! It was lucky timing and perfect cloud conditions to diffuse the sun just the right amount.
