A peek through the clouds

  1. During the latter half of 2015 I had the (mis)fortune of doing weekly red-eye commutes between the two islands of New Zealand. I made the most of it, taking a very compact m4/3 kit along with everything else in just a single backpack.

    I'd flown on many previous occasions with a camera, but I never got any keepers from the air. During these trips, I discovered aerial telephoto photography for the first time. I found a short telephoto to be a great focal length, allowing a window on the world from a very unique perspective. The field of view is narrow enough to get the plane out of the frame, and you can even avoid the jet wash to a large extent if you're careful. The focal length is just long enough - any longer and you'll start to get degradation from the plexiglass, turbulence and engine vibrations.

    Here are some of my favourites, almost all taken with the Olympus 45mm and the GM5. (Excuse the reposting, some of them might have appeared in the lens showcase threads already)
