Aerial. Aurora.


PSX_20180426_215610-01_wm.jpg


Going 800 km/h I sat there fully covered in blankets trying to capture this 5 seconds long exposure. Capturing the picture above took over 40 times until I was satisfied. My body was hurting everywhere since I had no tripod with me on the plane to stabilize my camera.(why would you ever?)

While trying to work these insanely beautiful Northern lights I was laughed at by my neighboring passenger. She didn't think I would succeed and well.. I kinda had to prove her otherwise ever since she made that statement right :P?

I spotted these mysterious tints on my way back from San Fransico while flying over Greenland back to Holland. The sad thing is that I traveled to Iceland two weeks before this plane trip, and sadly I didn't see any of the beautiful aurora while being there!! Live made up for that sad experience by throwing me these photons just a little time later when I was least expecting them

Just try to imagine how it must have looked like, me sitting there all energetic after 5 hours of flight, all covered up to keep out as much light as possible from the cabin.

See my edits way below :)

Pretty awesome pic!

Great shot! I have been known to spend exhorbinant amounts of time and energy to get something in the dark. Sometimes it pans out, sometimes it doesn't. Looks like you were successful here. I wish I could see them in person though...

It's a very good job, you did. Many times we don't have time to enjoy this kind of events. Busy in day to day we forget the wonderful natural events that God gives us.

Unfortunately our present reality blinds us to the wonders that surround us ... sometimes the photos manage to bring us back to that wonderful moment ... or the deep awareness of present.

Holy moly! It's beautiful. Great photos dude!

Awesome captures! I've been chasing the lights myself here in Alaska. It would be amazing to catch them from a plane!

It's an amazing photo. I've done a few shots from a moving airplane, very tricky to do. Well done
