Last week I saw my first copy of Bill Fortney’s amazing new book, “America From 500 Feet, II” which is a stunning photography book of images of the American landscape, taken from an Ultralight airplane (as seen above), over a period of one year, by two incredible landscape photographers: Bill Fortney and Mark Kettenhofen,” and I was blown away. We all were.
His original book, “America From 500 Feet” still holds the record as the best-selling aviation photography book in history, and this new project, if possible, is even better. The images are so dramatic, so beautiful, and so compelling, that it makes you see the American landscape in a whole new way. They include some great stories from their year on the road, and the entire hardcover book is beautifully laid out, presented, and printed. It would make a perfect holiday gift! You can find it at Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com for around $32.
My congratulations to Bill and Mark for creating something really special.
