About Jeff Vilkin

Since 2008 I have been piloting a Cirrus aircraft around many of the spectacular mountain and desert areas of the Western United States. I have experienced, and collected some special "images from 14,000 feet", that few people, other than General Aviation Pilots, ever experience. Some of these images are displayed on these pages. I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks so much Jeff for such a nice comment. I try to strive for a balance in the photographs. The one that speaks i feel in my heart and mind is the one i always gravitate to. My hope is to be able to convey peace. So thanks for affirming what i was trying to convey. Also i love your picks keep them coming
