Ever wondered how I get my shots from classic tourist locations, but with absolutely no one else in them?

The DC3 airplane crash site in Iceland, a must stop for most tourists that do the classic road trip route. How is it then possible to get shots with no one else in them? Here’s my secret, be a Morning person! Set your alarm to be there BEFORE sunrise, not only do you get the best light to shoot in but you also get the sites all to yourself. This one shot with my @gopro Hero 7, check out that stabilization 👌 #Iceland #sunrise #dc3iceland #gopro #hypersmooth #pilotmaria #hero7black

A Pilot’s Diary 👩‍✈️ Let me know if you like these kind of videos where I talk about my working week. 
Also do you prefer them horizontal like this, or vertical?

Not photoshopped! ☝️To date one of my favorite photos! I don’t know why I never posted this, maybe the fear of knowing that the engagement would be bad because it’s not a close-up-in-my-face kind of photo. But to be honest, as much as I want to post photos that you engage with, I come to realize that I also have to post photos that I love, and I think a mix of both would be perfect, ‘lagom’ is best as we say in Swedish ☺️ (look up ‘lagom’ best word EVER, well used by every Swede) photo by @theglobemaster Pilot: @volcanopilot 👌

Don’t compare yourself to filters and ‘your worst to someone’s best’ With social media today playing such an important role in people’s lives, I just wanted to open up and share some real stuff. Not that I’m against sharing only positive things on social media, nobody wants to read all about negativity all day. But I also believe that no one should compare themselves to the small percent of our lives that we choose to share here.

1. Hi 👋 this is me 99 % of the time, unedited, no make up but in general a happy girl.
2. Also me, but work me 👩‍✈️ Flying airplanes and doing my best making my job look cool on social media. I do love my job but it’s not all blue skies and tailwind. It’s hard work, dark circles under my eyes after a week of 03:15 am wake up calls, dry skin, cosmic radiation and after a shitty landing not so cool at all.
3. Full glam me 💁‍♀️ Make up done by my talented friend @showmemakeup (make up in photo 2 also done by Shonagh. To see full make up tutorial use the link in my bio) I normally wouldn’t wear this much make up but I do love to once in a while dress up and try make myself look pretty for an event or night out.

If you want to see before and after on the edited photos (photo 2 & 3)  check out my stories x Maria #realstagram
