The aerial perspective is commonplace from the window of an airliner but very personal when seen and felt from the open door of a helicopter. When you look down and view the land it almost seems to surround you. Water appears solid, clouds touch your face and it is surprisingly peaceful. Water and soil always get my attention from the air. It is not just the patterns that appear but the activity that is on display. The wind, the tides, the power and the calm are all elements that present themselves differently in this aerial perspective. “From Above” is a portfolio of color and black & white aerial photographs of movements and patterns and anything else that catches my eye “From Above”.
