Aerial Cloud View

This fabulous photo …

… was captured by Santiago Borja and published by National Geographic.

It is a gigantic cumulonimbus cloud (the kind that pilots are ever vigilant to avoid, especially during summer) over the Pacific Ocean; the photo was taken from about 37,000 ft.

The photographer captured this shot during one of the lightening flashes emanating from the cloud.

As a pilot, I have taken what I consider to be rather interesting pictures from aloft, but I have nothing even approaching this.

    1. Yes, it certainly is. 🙂 I have spent quite a bit of time studying it, and that is one beautiful but very dangerous cloud. The lightening makes it appear as if it’s possessed by a life-force (which it is, really, pure energy).

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
