Some aerial photos tonight
Aerial photography is one my favorite type of photography. I love the way everything looks so different from high up. It makes everyday things seem simple.
Some aerial photographs tonight.
1) Scottish Highlands
2) Boreal forest, Alaska
3) Swiss Alps
4) Coral Sea, Australia
5) Kauai, Hawaii
This is an aerial photograph that I took of a narrow canyon along the Na Pali coast on the north-western side of Kauai, Hawaii. Much of the Na Pali coastline is abrupt cliffs and canyons that quickly climb from sea-level up to 4,200 ft ridges. The canyon ridges are often covered with misty clouds. The area is one the wettest places in the world with the mountain top rainforests accumulating as much as 450 inches of rain a year.
I took this photo when my friend Ben was flying me for some aerial photography along the California cost. We were off the coast of Santa Barbara when we unexpectedly ran across these two humpback whales migrating south along the coast. I quickly took a few shots before they dove out of sight.
