If you're like me and love flying, then you'll always try and get the window seat at every opportunity. Although these days, I like to sit in an aisle seat to lessen climbing across other passengers, upsetting their snooze and spilling coffee across everyone. But whenever I do take time to look outside of that sought after window seat, I never cease to be amazed at how the world takes on a such different perspective.

As a drone pilot perhaps I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. I love the way clouds cast their shadows across the terrain, the way different landscapes vary so much within your view, and when the sun goes down, wow, the beautiful long shadows cast by the mountains draw beautiful shapes so clearly defining areas of the land all those thousands of feet below. The world up high is most definitely seen in a completely different perspective.

So the next time you're thinking about how best to film or photograph something, think skywards and imagine how much more interesting, informative and exciting an aerial perspective can be.
