Pilot Captures Crazy-Surreal Photo Series By Basically Just Sticking His Camera Out The Cockpit

Alex MacLean is used to seeing the world from up high. The photographer is also a licensed pilot, and he's spent years "sticking his camera out the cockpit" of a small Cessna 182, snapping what he sees below.

The result is an astounding photo essay that pits man-made civilization against nature, animals against industry, and humans against the forces that, from above, are clearly mightier than we'll ever be.
