THE OPEN ROAD

TRUCKING THROUGH THE DESERT

I'm not a great lover of light aircraft but during a trip to view the Nasca Lines in Peru this opportunity came up. This area is open and barren desert (which is what has preserved the ancient lines) and the Pan Am highway runs right through the middle of it. So while up in the plane I managed to convince the pilot to do a quick detour to get this shot.

Banking at a steep angle and trying to focus on a moving target is a great deal of fun or terrifying, depending on your preference.
