Heart-stirring world of storms and skies in pictures taken by 747 pilot
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.
