Why do I like taking photos of clouds? Because clouds are fickle. You can never see the same clouds for twice, nor can you guess what shapes they’ll turn into next. On plane, when you open the sun visor, you’ll be surprised by your sight. So each time when I arrive at the airport early, I would choose the seat by windows and take out my camera before putting away my luggage after boarding, so that I can photograph the sky whenever I like.
I’ve forgotten where the two photos were taken, probably on the flight from Beijing to Guangzhou or somewhere else(anyway, it’s on the plane). Before taking off , it turned out nothing special, hence I pulled down the sun visor and fell asleep. However, when I woke up and pulled up the sun shield, OH MY GOD, the most gorgeous sky in the daytime I’ve ever seen popped into my sight. As we know, usually the sky has nothing attractive in the daytime, unless the clouds are myriad yet not dense. Anyway, such clouds of multi-levels are spectacular!
Let’s look at the first picture. The clouds on bottom layer are so evenly distributed that they look like the surface of peaceful lake water under the sun. It is rare for me to witness that the clouds can also reflect such light as well as water, amazing! Then they’re followed by other piles of clouds. Actually, it is inappropriate to depict them with “pile”, for the coverage of the clouds is no less than dozens of hundreds of square meters, through which the plane flies like a sparrow. However, the sunshine pierces through these clouds, gilding the clouds with brilliant brinks. It is indescribable, let’s look at the photos!
This picture is superb, too! Here is sprinkled with sunshine, there fraught with dark clouds. By Ray, a Guangzhou Photographer.
