Suborbital Transit by hjl
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.
