A personal look at the wonders of the world from zero to 30,000 ft.
I love to fly; whenever the plane lifts off and the wheels come up I feel that I'm back in my natural environment. I've been fortunate enough to travel for most of my business life, but I never seem to get as much work done in-flight as my colleagues because I'm always fascinated by the view outside my window seat.
Clouds and sunsets can be awe-inspiring, but just as often I'm mesmerized by the unending variety of the textures and patterns in the landscape below. Sometime I feel the intellectual curiosity of "I wonder what causes that?" More often, though, I don't need to know; there's just the pure joy of seeing things that intrigue me, stir my emotions and make me want to share what I see.
The world is just as beautiful and fascinating at ground level, of course. Just as when airborne, large-scale vistas can be inspiring, while intriguing shapes, patterns and textures can be found right at your feet. I hope that these photographs, all the aerials of which were taken from window seats on commercial airline flights, give you the same sense of wonder that inspired me.
