Continuing my series World from Above taken from commercial aeroplanes.
This shot was taken on the ascent through the evening clouds. Looking back I had a spectacular view to the mountain tops of La Palma peaking through the fluffly clouds below and the sun shining through onto the water – in the foreground left. The thicker layer of cloud above acted like a filter spreading the rays of the evening sun.
Location: Flight from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain to Germany.
