I don’t know if you’re anything like me but when I get the choice on a plane I’d always prefer to have a window seat rather than the aisle – not because I’m trying to get some probably well needed sleep but because the views are always worth it. Watching the clouds or spotting major landmarks from the air is one of my favourite travel past times so imagine my excitement when I discovered two artists taking aerial landscape photography to the next level.

Sarah Hicks & Brent Yaggi fly 2,000 feet up in a Cessna 172 (a freaking tiny plane) to capture patterns with their Nikon lenses. This Anglo-American team have been flying for the past 3 years to capture the most beautiful landscapes of the States from above. What do you think to what they’ve captured?

If heights aren’t your thing and you prefer to admire your landcapes with two feet firmly on the ground you can buy prints of their beautiful images here.
