Out the Window, Part II


I think it's fitting that yesterday's photo was from my plane flight to New York and this is from my plane flight back to California. There's a comforting symmetry to that, somehow.

I looked out of the window and saw this amazing sky with the rainbow and I knew I had to capture it. I love the grayness of the sky and what the light does to the wing of the plane. Something perhaps about the circular polarizer I had on the lens at the time created the second rainbow of to the left in the image - I can't really explain that one. Anyway, two completely different images, but both shot out of the plane, and both with beautiful light.

  1. Possibly refraction caused by the window?

  2. Probably the combination of the vinyl window in the plane and the polarizer. Either way it looks great. I do love the colors and reflections on the wing and the greens of the land.

  3. I'm fairly certain that it is an Avtur smear on the outside, just means they had to vent fuel before landing sometime that month, great dirty window shot!

  4. A nice shot, and I agree with you...probably the polarizer.

  5. A terrific pair of very different "out the window" shots - definately not what you typically see.

  6. Thanks for the interesting read. The web is so full of junk it's becoming difficult to find exactly what you're looking for nowadays. Have you got feed on this website?
