While doing some photography for a new book about aerial photography soon to be released by Flying M Productions, I had the opportunity to circle Vulture Peak in Flying M Air’s helicopter at a variety of altitudes, right around sunset. What many people don’t realize is that Vulture Peak is more than a single rocky outcropping rising more than a thousand feet off the desert floor. It’s part of a volcanic rock formation. From different angles, it has a completely different appearance. Circling the peak from the air is the only way to see all of its faces.
This image was captured from northwest of the peak about 10 minutes before sunset.
