Soaring over Langkawi

I introduced myself to the resort manager and told him straight, “If you can fly me around the islands I will give you my photos.” Chutzpah, but with a cough to boost.

The very sweet manager called me up at midnight to inform me I would be flying the next day for 15 minutes. Request granted.

Majestic Mayon

The majestic Mayon was a candidate of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2008 (did not make it to the top 25 and gave way to our Puerto Princesa’s Underground River) and considered to be one of the world’s most perfectly formed volcanoes.

I was lucky to have been flown above the dangerously beautiful crater and be able to share my images in publications.
