Aerial Views of Europe

I was lucky enough to get a window seat on my flight to and from Tokyo and Paris. Land was no longer visible past a certain point, but France, the Netherlands, and Scandinavia could be seen quite nicely.
The neat rectangular farms, which I also saw from my Amsterdam-Tokyo flight last year, indicated this was somewhere in the Netherlands.

These plots look ruler-thin.

In France. This looks like a castle and its outer walls...or a prison...or the projects.

Flying out from Charles de Gaulle Airport on the way back.

We left around 19:30, when the sun was beginning its descent.

It's too bad that you can't actually see Paris when you head to Charles de Gaulle. Part of me was hoping that the Eiffel Tower would actually be visible.

Wind turbines in Amiens, north of Paris.

According to the map on the plane, this is near Silkebourg, Denmark.

More wind turbines around Ribe, Denmark.

Wind turbines in the water! This was between Aarhus, Denmark and Almstud, Sweden.

Around Helsinki, where the land was spotted with small bodies of water.
