Up In The Clouds – Flights and Photography

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
― Leonardo da Vinci

No matter how many hundreds of flights I’ve travelled on, the fluffy clouds and the tiny toy towns always seem to mesmerise me! Long haul flights, don’t seem so ‘long’ when I’m day dreaming about what lies beyond….

Here are some of the beautiful moments I have captured while in the air. Please enjoy the (unedited) photography xoxo.

1. Where Day Meets Night

This is probably my favourite captures. The precise point where day and night collide.

2. Lightening Strikes

You see that illuminated cloud? That’s lightening! We were flying just above a thunderstorm in Jamaica.
