Suborbital Transit by hjl on Flickr.
38000 feet above Northern California
Update: a few people have asked about how this was made. This is above some bumpy weather from the window seat in the last row on a northbound 737, looking southwest towards the tail late in the afternoon. The sun is low and out of frame, around where the flare at lower right and the horizon would meet, which makes good shadows, and keeps the smudgy window from washing the scene out. The camera (EOS M) is nearly at the seat in front of me, with a diagonal view which both avoids the tail and picks up some curvature from the plastic airplane window, along with extra flare and haze. I also added a few points of curvature in Lightroom, basically the opposite direction of the lens profile correction.
It’s like staring at the bombing of Nagasaki or a scene from the movie Gravity!! Thanks John for this amazing capture.
hjlphotos asked: Hello, let me know which photo you like and a mailing address and I'll send you a print! --hjl
THANK YOU very much for the message. I’ m really surprise!!! :) This is my first time having a personalized print given to me from someone i follow here on Tumblr. This is really cool and awesome! I don’t expect this because i thought the print give away is already finish.
So i need to reblog my chosen picture which is ’ SUBORBITAL TRANSIT ’ right? To be honest, i’m not good at writing reviews and commentaries, but i leave that to the expert here on tumblr.. but i will give it a try and just have fun. :)
Thank you John…having prints or not, i’ll still love your blog and photos! ;) You are an inspiration…
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
