    I think that deserts are one of the most interesting landscapes to see from the air. With nothing to hide under everything is exposed, from every crevasse to every grain of sand.

    Great shot, it reminds me of my first flight over a desert.

    Love it! Could spend a lot of time studying this shot. The sharp edges of the mountains contrast well with the soft, pillowy clouds. I love all of the color nuances in the sand - and the dry riverbed - I could go on and on.

    Outstanding work here. Your aerial images are excellent. It's like a big set of waves rolling ashore, but from 10,000 feet. Great colours and tones.
