Birds’ View of Madison

177. Looking Down

aerial Madison

Flying into Madison provides a great view of the city. The State Capitol is a bit right of center. The Capitol Building and Madison’e downtown is on an isthmus, only a couple of miles wide, and sandwiched between Lake Mendota (upper) and Lake Monona (lower). Living in the city, everything is quite near one lake or another, but I’m always surprised when I fly over Madison and see how much of the area is water vs. land.

    Gorgeous bird’s view of Madison with the ‘mini’ buildings, surrounding waters, and in-depth landscape meeting horizon. I really like this. 🙂

    Great shot, I didn’t realize Madison was practically an island, looks like a little Manhattan:)
