  8. I love aerial views. I used to do photogrammetry – digitizing from aerial photo’s to make maps. I loved that job! These are wonderful images.

  26. Taking to sky, your aerial photography is breathtaking. I assume these represent your local area and home? Wonderful idea, now I’m curious what lens and settings did you use?

    • Thank you, Daniel. Yes, this is just a couple of miles from home.
      I used a Nikon 28-300mm at f/11, on a D810.
      The doors of the helicopter were off, so there was no glare issue (as there is when taking them through the glass “bubble.”).

  29. Gives a person an entirely new perspective on life, doesn’t it?! A thrilling yet humbling experience. I flew in a helicopter once in Hawaii and will never forget the feeling that came over me from that vantage point. Gorgeous photos. Thank you for sharing with us today. xoxo

  33. I really like that first shot, reminds me of a golf course I looked down on just over a year ago – you really see a part of the course mapped out. I like that quote from Amelia Airhart.
