Eyes of the Vortex

October 26th, 2009

This happened October 26th, 2008 on a cloudy afternoon. I'm an aviation enthusiast and I was waiting for Iberia's Airbus A340 to arrive as I do many other days past 3pm but this particular afternoon, even if the sun was shinning, there was a big cloud blocking the way so I stayed alert for a cloud-breaking moment but never for one of this magnitude. It was breathtaking.

This photograph was taken with a Canon EOS 40D + EF 100-400mm L lens. I used Apple Aperture for editing and Adobe Photoshop CS3 for resizing.

Cool capture! Not sure it works for me as a desktop, but this would be an awesome base for an airline ad or something of the sort.

P.S. Did anyone else immediately think "giant lemur eyes" when looking at those clouds? That plane is flying a little too close to a mystical primate dimension!
