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?" but even when I don't know there's the pure joy of seeing things that intrigue me, stir my emotions and make me want to share them.
The world is just as beautiful and fascinating at ground level. Just as large-scale vistas can be inspiring when airborne, intriguing shapes, patterns and textures can also be found in the details right at your feet.
I hope that these photographs give you the same sense of wonder that inspired me, and encourage you to look more closely at our amazing planet.
PS: All the aerial images were taken from window seats on commercial airline flights - no drones or chartered flights! If you're interested in how, drop me a note; I'll be happy to share my approach.
