While on assignment for a BDN Outdoors story in January 2013, I made a series of aerial photographs over Wildlife Management District 19. The reporter and I were flying in a Bell 407 helicopter and were at times only about 200 feet above the ground.

The wilderness in WMD 19 near Township 40 is stunning with fast-flowing streams, never-ending rows of conifer and lakes frozen in glaring sheets of ice. From the helicopter window I could see forests vanish into the horizon, where hundreds of thousands more acres of northern landscape lay beyond.

These photographs are just a small sample of the vastness of the Maine landscape and a view you can only experience from the sky.
