Part of my series World from Above. Clouds captured flying over the English Channel from a commercial plane. I was about 10,000 metres above sea level. The clouds were below me but above the water.
Tip how to create this in-camera effect if you are flying over water in the right light conditions: Make sure you take a polarisation filter with you and watch out for the right scene below. This doesn’t have to be the sea. I’ve got a few amazing shots over rivers and lakes. This effect is due to the filter combined with the plane’s multiplex glass and depends on the angle of light refracting off the water. Have fun experimenting!
