Perhaps the only good aspect of a Twin Otter flight (other than getting to your destination) is the fact that, weather permitting, it allows for decent aerial photography (yes, I’m the geek holding the camera to the aircraft window ignoring the snickers and stares from other passengers).  I’m sure many would laugh and disagree, but I consider this a kind of art form.  It’s not easy to get a decent photograph while shooting through a scratched window.  And then you have weather, wings, sunlight (whether friend or foe), speed and altitude to contend with.

On a recent trip to Fiji, conditions allowed me to snap many an aerial photograph, and much to my surprise, some of them are worthy of posting here.
