Flying in the air and experiecing the world from top is an amazing experience. All such experiences are only because of great friends around me. This time again, one of my friend referred me for a completely different project in Madhya Pradesh. This Photo Journey doesn't include any project related photograph but some aerial shots we took on the way to Madhya Pradesh from Greater Noida.
The very first photograph of this journey which was clicked very quickly when pilot of the chopper messaged me to see on the right and try to concentrate on right edge of river. It was quite hazy and we were quite far from the Taj. Overall I am happy with what I could capture.
Here is the first photograph clicked as we started our flight from Great Noida. This view shows Express Way which connects Noida with Greater Noida.
We had one chopper engineer along with Pilot. Three of us drove to Muraina Town where some of the officers had to join us for breifing of the real project. This whole day was a great experience to meet people from different walks of life - Chopper Pilot, Engineers who take care of helicopters & private aircrafts for India's big businessmen, Madhya Pradesh Administrative officers, local politicians, Villagers around Chambal etc.
It was awesome to see ground from 2000-3000 feet. Our Helicopter was flying around 2 thousand feets and kept changing the height and path, as per guidelines shared by ground officials. Pilot was always connected to ground officers to understand traffic in air and get appropriate directions.
First time I felt that Uttar Pradesh has plenty of natural water resources and same water is distributed to agricultural areas through cannals. It was amazing to see huge agricultural lands...
Along with marvelous views, it was a great experience to hear the conversation which happens between the pilot and ground authories.
