    Ariel Photography anyone?

    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.

    Thanks for the site. Very cool. Others who are interested in Aerial Photography should check out the book -- "Earth from Above." Amazing aerial photography from around the globe. They had an outdoor photo exhibit in downtown Chicago a couple years back.

    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

    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.

    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

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