After seeing a friends aerial images of the Palouse, Dan and I decided we wanted to give it a try too. We each rented a Cessna 172 and scheduled two one hour flights. One in the morning and another in the evening. We liked it so much, we decided to do one more evening flight after the tours ended. Below is a collection of some images I like thus far.
Because you are moving and shooting out of a windy window, it becomes a challenge to make perfect compositions. I took about 600 images during the three flights and quickly realized not to worry about perfect composition in camera. I would do some cropping in post.
All images were taken with my Fuji X-T1 and 18-55mm lens. Remember this is an APS system so that translates to about 28-70 full frame. I never felt I needed more or less than that. It was the perfect lens for this situation.
