New Phytologist

I'm very pleased to have one of my Amazonian aerial photographs on the front cover of new Phytologist. The shot was taken from a helicopter at about 6am just as the sun was rising. The light was perfect, with mist rising from the forest canopy.  Flying low level over the forest is really exciting. You feel as if you can almost touch the treetops. Quite a lot of aerail shots are done using drones now, but there's nothing quite like looking through a viewfinder at scenes like this using a Nikon D4, or Hasselblad.
