I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.

    Excellent catch! I see them on the Thames, and it’s a sight ;-) I like how they manage to then fly at a perfectly constant distance from the water, just above!

  • thank you Themis :-)
