Namibia from the Air

Of all the places I am blessed to visit with my work, it is perhaps Namibia that is my most favourite destination for aerial photography.  Recently I returned from Namibia with some very special views of this remarkable country – from the air.

Using a combination of drone, light aeroplane and a doorless helicopter flying over the desert, here are some of my favourite shots from the trip.
