As a pilot, I make a living in the air.
Clouds, winds, cold fronts and temperature inversions; it's all part of the playing-field we traverse on flights around the globe.
Since I've found my way to the cockpit, the cloud-scapes have turned from constantly changing backgrounds into three-dimensional sceneries. Towering cumulus clouds, flat layers of icy stratus or violent thunderstorms that illuminate the night.
The undeniable beauty is breathtaking, at the same time I am acutely aware of the mighty nature of these aerial giants.
No matter how large the 747 may seem from a human perspective, it dwarfs in the presence of storms and hurricanes. This dual nature of the extremely powerful forces of nature command respect from every pilot.
The beauty of mother nature in the atmosphere above.
