”Heading Home”

”Heading Home”

Yes, it's another image made while shooting out the plane window at 30,000 feet. We left early in the morning well before the sun was to rise. As we hit the higher altitudes after take off, the sun just started to peek over the cloud horizon. It's intensity, at this moment, was not so great to wash out the detail of the clouds below. A few minutes later, all brightness shone forth and the earlier moment was gone forever. I especially enjoy how the plane window bent the sun-rays down at a slight diagonal across the image. The contrasts work well here too. Camera specs: Canon 5D fitted with 24-105mm IS lens, F 8.0 @ 1/125 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! -David
