Clouds seen from above

Clouds seen from above

Clouds seen from above, are memories from my frequent travel. They are mostly when I had horizontal illumination.

The pandemic locked me down for the last 10 months, wanted to share images I regularly saw during the flight.

They are from different parts of the world, some early morning and others just before sunset, which have different luminosity.

I do not know the cloud names, however, understand they are called Cumulous. Some show the peace you feel traveling at high altitude, only hearing the rumbling of the turbines. Others have the details of snow waiting the terrain with a white cover.

When taking the images I had to place the lens close to the window, avoiding registering any reflections.  Sometimes I used a blanket that gave total darkness around the lens eliminating the reflections.  

Older airplane windows, if clean or not scratched, were good to take images. Newer airplane models have windows with layers filtering some colors or incorporating colored banding into the pictures.

I eliminated the color banding converting images into black and white.

For this post I preferred to share only black and white giving the spectator the true feeling I had while watching them.

Hope soon travel restrictions will be lifted to continue capturing and registering clouds seen from above.
