    http://www.cornfieldmaze.com/ This is a just for fun site that I found amaizing! (misspelling is intentional) Seems to be quite a few around in the USA. Even a few are in Europe. Of course they had to put one in Mexico for Jorge.

    It always looks exciting - but I hate hights so much I don't think I could hold the camera still even with film rated at 6400 on a bright Sunny day :wink:

    In my young days in the distant past while I still had delusions of immortality, I did a lot fo really stupid things. One comes to mind, at the North rim of the Grand Canyon. I wanted to get this one picture, and there was just too much of the cliff in the way. I got on the other side of the guard rail, hooked my leg around the bottom rung and leaned zas far out as possible. The height just didn't seem real. I have been back to that spot many times. Today I have trouble just going close to the railing.

    I think the immortality thing is now the problem. Although I was never that brave I use to enjoy potholing, abseiling and of course from these rock climbing. I even use to chase "baddies" over walls. fences, roofs, wherever they went I would. But at some point I realised I could get injured, possibly it was when I crashed a motor cycle for the last time and ever since they thought of what you Aggie makes me think oh s£%t!!! LOL

    Well, I print aerial (this is the correct spelling) film everyday, but I have yet to go in an airplane. I don't have the ears for it or the nerves. Flew once when I was young and was sick the whole time and had a headache for days after. I stay in the shop and view the overhead shots in safety. :smile:

    I don't know how he did it but a local guy slung a camera to a kite and flow it above Totnes. The picture(s) are appearing all over the place and even got him in the local rags which was nice free advertising :smile:

    Kite Photography is a genre in itself. Have seen some great shots, try a google.
