The photograph was taken as the passenger flight from Stornoway approached Aberdeen Airport yesterday.
It shows a section of the 36-mile road around Blackburn and Clinterty, north west of the city.
Aberdeen Central SNP MSP Kevin Stewart, who took the picture, said: “Fantastic to see the progress of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route from the air.
Mr Stewart, who is also local government and housing minister, added: “This investment of £745 million backed by the Scottish Government will be a great boon to Aberdeen & the North East.
“I look forward to it being completed on time.”
The road is due to open this winter.
