10 incredible aeroplane views taken by a pilot

Get a perspective like no other with these majestic shots captured from above.
By Alison Mann

It’s easy to gaze out of the plane window as you cruise across the skies to foreign fields and daydream about what lies beneath.

For Adam Senatori this has been a life’s work – admittedly he was a commercial airline pilot so probably wasn’t doing much daydreaming. But a passion was born, and although no longer flying commercially, Senatori still regularly soars above the clouds, taking beautiful images as he goes.

The American pilot’s 800,000-strong Instagram profile is full of these aerial images. Lately, he’s started using a special Tilt Shift lens, which gives some images a magical toy-town effect.

Take a look at some of his most amazing images here.
