Introducing Greg’s 2022 “Airport Magic from the Flying Carpet” Photo Wall Calendar!

Check out Greg’s new 2022 “Airport Magic, from the Flying Carpet” Photo Wall Calendar!

This colorful 11″x17″ calendar captures the magic of flight, but you and your gift recipients needn’t be aviators to appreciate it!

It features thirteen captivating photographs of diverse North American airports I’ve visited by Flying Carpet, at all times of year.

Few of us view calendar covers after opening, so I rotated the cover photo 90 degrees to create an 11″x17″ vista suitable for framing. (Monthly photos are 8½” x 11″, with plenty of space for daily notes.)

These super-quality calendars are printed on premium stock by the same lab that prints my Fine Art Photo Metal Prints.

You are hereby officially authorized to remove and frame the cover photo(and any others for that matter) either to remind you of past flying adventures, or to inspire future ones!

$29.95 + shipping & applicable tax.

“Miles and Miles of Sunflowers!” Greg’s latest Fine Art Aerial Photo Metal Print!

Hey Friends, thanks to your enthusiastic reception, here’s “Miles and Miles of Sunflowers,” my latest “View from the Flying Carpet” Fine Art Metal Print!

I was returning my wife Jean and her tennis teammate Jenny from a tournament in El Paso. Five long hours round trip by Flying Carpet, and it was too hazy to see anything special… until 15 minutes from home.

There we encountered these vivid, horizon-to-horizon sunflowers sweeping from Lake Mary toward the San Francisco Peaks. Never have we seen anything like this before! This turns out to be Northern Arizona’s most amazing wildflower year in memory, and we’re thrilled to have captured even a tiny fragment of it from aloft.

Nowhere is the power of numbers more boldly reflected than in these fields of sunflowers captured from a speeding airplane thousands of feet in the air!

Like all my Fine Art Metal Prints, “Miles and Miles of Sunflowers,” ready-to-hang pricing starts at just $125, with super-affordable 2-day shipping throughout the Continental US.

Check out all my Views from the Flying Carpet aerials* and Down to Earth terrestrial photos!* (*These pages take a moment to load.)

Many thanks to all who invest in my prints, books, and pilot achievement plaques!

Listen to “Birthday Flowers,” Greg’s Flying Carpet Podcast Flight #15

When celebrating birthdays with zeros in them, flowers alone won’t do it. So when my wife Jean marked a new decade I sought somewhere special we could fly to celebrate.

“But it seems kinda weird celebrating a big birthday in Death Valley,” she said…
