Aerial view of Heysen Range, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

A different angle of the Heysen Range - an amazing mountain formation from hundreds of millions of years ago - shot at dawn from the air.  This shot required some negotiation with the pilot for a pre-dawn takeoff on a dirt runway in very low light conditions.  With the door off, it enabled me to photograph with such a wide angle without having the wing in shot.  It was still dark enough to realise there was more colour in the scene than the human eye could detect at the time.  The sun quickly rose and I only had one pass at this shot travelling roughly 200km/h before the painterly quality of light deteriorated and hardened by the second pass.  Luckily I composed this frame the first time round.
