Window Seat

The window seat is always the  jealousy-guarded spot on a plane and these breathtaking pictures prove  why.

Snapped thousands of feet above the ground,  this set of pictures shows the varying beauty of the earth taken from inside the  cabins of planes.

Among the collection are the landscapes of  New York City, Christ the Redeemer in Rio, Brazil and Doha in Qatar.

The photos were compiled and uploaded by website Twisted Sifter.
