Flight rule #1: always get a window seat!
I have been photographing clouds from planes since 1993 and built up a huge archive of photographs. In fact an early series of cloud photographs taken in 1995 formed the main body of my portfolio for many years.
As part of a series titled Flux, documenting the slowly evolving shapes of cloud forms, this image of a gargantuan, towering wall of cloud was an attempt to capture not only the majestic and beautiful forces of turbulence at work but also the potentially violent and destructive power it embodies.
I make photographs, 360-panoramas, composites and collages.
