Heart-stirring world of storms and skies in pictures taken by 747 pilot 10/1/2016 • Tanja!!!!
These striking pictures of thunderstorms make me jealous of airline pilots. They must have access to the most spectacular views. Do you feel that your heart is beating like a rabbit too?
From an early age Christiaan van Heijst has found great joy in capturing the beauty of the sky and natural light. Today he is a 747 pilot (wow!) and still in love with the sky. Christiaan takes mesmerizing pictures of sunsets, thunderstorms and even the northern lights (also known as aurora borealis). Shooting with a Nikon D800, Christiaan captures different parts of our planet and immortalize the beauty of the places he visits. Lucky we are: he doesn't keep the results of his work to himself and kindly shares them with us.
