Places Without Locations

Crossed Wires

Crossed Wires

Many photos are of recognizable places, like the Manhattan skyline. None of these landscapes are of instantly identifiable locations. The two aerials were photographed somewhere between Houston and LA, but I can’t tell you even what state is pictured. Remaining images are from Kauai, but without the Hawaii tag, nobody would ever know. [A fellow blogger who is also a pilot identified “Farmland II”. See the comments.]

    I love this series! And I love to recall flying over crop circles when I used to fly between Michigan and New Mexico. I’m reblogging this – thanks.

    I can tell you where the second image was taken. The city with the airstrip in the upper half of the photo is Parker in AZ. πŸ™‚ I spent so much time flying in that area and a quick google maps search showed that my first guess was right.

    • I figured it would take a pilot familiar with the area to recognize it. Thanks for the info. Perhaps you can scroll down about 15 posts to the other aerial set. Parker is there in B&W.

  6. Beautiful images. Amazing just a little bit above where we plant our feet, we become so small. Imagine how small we are in the universe.

  7. Both the aerial photos bring back memories of Arizona…someone already commented that one of them is in Arizona and I agree! I first saw crop circles in 1983 when flying with Don out to San Francisco (between Chicago and SF). The pilot even took the time to explain to us what they were πŸ™‚
    Beautiful shots as usual…a couple really caught my eye.

    • Thank you Laurie, that is the most abstract of the set. It was taken at Hanalei bay, easily the most beautiful beach in Hawaii. I hope things are going well for you, and the finish line is close.

  12. Wow – what an ocean scene – quite stunning!!! πŸ˜€ Just thought I’d mention by the way – new name, blue face, but the same Suzy as before! πŸ˜‰

  13. I loved the ariels, in particular. Pivot sprinklers have definitely changed the farming landscape. You captured it quite well!

  14. Wonderful!

  15. Love how you’ve captured the reflections of the Crossed Wires. Fantastic image!

    • Thank you, I can’t walk past any water without looking for reflections.
