Spending a bit more time in the air again, of late… Enjoying the beauty of the New England landscape, from above. Some time away, a fresh perspective… All good. And so, I’ve collected and edited a visual journal of these hours and days. Colors, textures and patterns; strange, yet familiar beauty to share from the untethered world above.

Come fly away with me. A few moments, inside the sky . . .

It’s an Amazing Time of Year . . .

Mike’s Maze – Sunderland, Massachusetts (click image to enlarge)

Out for a short, early evening flight around the Pioneer Valley the other day, I happened to spot Mike’s Maze in nearby Sunderland, Massachusetts, reminding me that it’s time to get out and enjoy this harvest season activity. If you’re a long-time follower of this blog, you may recall my previous, Halloween post on corn mazes. Well, it’s that time of year again! Getting lost and found in a corn maze is great fun, and it’s also a fine way to support your local farming community.To find out more about mazes —including maze-locating links— and see some amazing photographs by Tim Geiss, click back to my previous post, here.

Of course, seeing the landscape and agricultural art from the air is especially fun. It’s been awhile since my last balloon flight —I usually get around the sky in a small airplane— but floating above the landscape  is a particularly beautiful and romantic way to experience it.

Although These Photographs Were Taken from a 1946 Luscombe 8A, I Often Spot Balloons from the Airplane. Flying by Hot Air Balloon is a Very Romantic Way to See the New England Landscape in Autumn. In the Pioneer Valley, Catch a Lift with Misty River Ballooning, or in the Berkshires, with Worthington Ballooning.
