Flying is for me one of the most exciting aspects of travelling. I love the thrill of the takeoff from the powerful vibration of the aircraft to the ferocious rumble of its engine. I always sit by the window to watch everything speed by until the aircraft touches the sky and everything below looks like a miniature toy set. During my vacation last month, my flight’s takeoff schedule coincided with the sunrise so that got me excited hoping to capture a few interesting shots. As soon as I got a glimpse of the sun I started snapping with my iPhone 7 Plus and framed the wing as an additional focal point to my composition.  I also included my home city of Fort Lauderdale below for a sense of height. The rich golden yellow light of the sun casting shadows all over also created a multidimensional effect on the clouds.  One technique I do when using my phone on a plane is to press the phone flat on the window to prevent reflections. Here are four photos I took as my plane soared over the Atlantic Ocean on it’s way to my vacation destination.

  2. Great pics. I recently had a wonderful flight from Barcelona to Doha which flew over Rome, Istanbul and various other places with clear skies abounding. What a joy to see spectacular scenery from on high instead of just cloud. 🙂

      • You said it, and the Arabian gulf at night was something too. I never really appreciated how bright naked fires are from the air compared to electric lights until then.


  3. Wonderfully jaw dropping captures these are Reymon!
    Though I have enjoyed the amazing feeling of flying high above of skies only twice in my life so far, and that too earlier this year :), I do want to experience it again.
    And thanks for the tip 🙂
