Iceland - aerial photographs

Iceland - aerial photographs

by Rog Palmer

Flight from Reykjavik to the volcano at Eyjafjallajökull. As a group of archaeologists who take and work with aerial photos, we had been planning some flying on this trip but the eruption put paid to easy access to aircraft as they were all ferrying tourists to the volcano. A cancellation gave us an evening slot (6-8pm) that provided some soft light as well as a few minutes at the volcano.

Beautiful light - Rome to Stansted

Beautiful light - Rome to Stansted

by Rog Palmer

Sun side of the aircraft for a late-afternoon flight. The gold sea and black are more or less the colours I was seeing but the mts have been processed a little more. These passenger flights pics are taken with a little Canon Powershot as the DSLRs are a bit too cumbersome. And I need to get a black or dark shirt for flying as you can see a reflection of my arm in some of the pics.

Clouds and alps - Stansted to Rome

by Rog Palmer

Taken from the sun side of the aircraft because the light is more interesting. Processed in two different ways giving the blue and brown pics of which I've duplicated at least one photo.

Archaeological aerial survey in Romania: Mostistea River Project

Archaeological aerial survey in Romania: Mostistea River Project

by Rog Palmer

The Mostistea River Project is compiling a GIS-based corpus of archaeological information in the Mostistea valley. This combines field walking, documentary sources with old and new aerial survey. The project is run by CIMEC (Institute of Cultural Memory) in Bucharest and I advise on photo interpretation and oblique aerial photography. In 2008, three flights were made from Clinceni airfield, SW of Bucharest. We took slightly different routes S of Bucharest to our area that lies to the SE.
I enjoy being a tourist on these flights (as well as doing some work) as the landscape and its features are very different to those I know in England (no golf courses everywhere for a start). This album is mostly of tourist shots and I've tried to give placenames whenever possible. Complete tracks and coordinates of photo locations are available if anyone is interested.
My thanks go to Irina Oberlander Tarnoveanu and Carmen Bem for making this collaboration possible, enjoyable and successful.

Wings over Armenia (retrospective)

Wings over Armenia (retrospective)

by Rog Palmer

The project, Wings over Armenia, evolved after a request by Armenian archaeologists to help establish aerial survey for archaeology in their country. Without going into too many details... the only practical way to do this was using a paramotor (kindly and bravely funded by the British Council) - hence the introductory pics. It's a 2-person configuration so the photographer is perched in front of the pilot and has an apparently-unsupported view to the ground. For safety reasons we used my ancient Nikon Coolpix (3 Megapix) so results aren't ideal. Sites illustrated are among the most photogenic in the 8 x 6 km area we are examining.
