Surly Bonds of Earth

The Surly Bonds of Earth

There’s little better than leaning out of an aircraft’s window with a camera stapped to your neck, taking pictures of, well, whatever, a few thousand feet below.

In fact, I’m assured there is. So that’s a bit of a lie, apparently.
"There’s little better than leaning out of an aircraft’s window with a camera stapped to your neck…"
Here we have a commission to get a photo of a house from the air for framing by the owners.

Actually, there’s little more to say, except enjoy the slipstream when it’s your turn! For a few pointers, do have a look at my post on aerial photography tips. I’ll also just refer you though to one of my favourite poems: High Flight, by John Gillespie Magee.

The final high point of our day, after low-speed passes of the houses in question at around 1500 feet was a high-speed, low-altitude pass of the airfield – see the second image in the sequence below.

I’ve reviewed all the day’s shots in my mini-gallery; do enjoy!

All the best,
