    Taken out of my cockpit at 36,000 feet of the Pilbara, a desert region in Western Australia. The dark lines are dry river beds. The area on the left that looks like leaves of a tree are actually small hills. The oranges are the different sands of the desert.

    In my opinion this looks just like a forest wild fire.

    I have post processed the image using ACR to increase contrast and rotated the image 90 degrees.

    Taken using an E-PL1 with 12-50mm lens at 50mm, f/6.3, 1/1250 sec, ISO 200


    What do you think? Any comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.

    Fantastic shot - the very bones of the earth. And I see the forest fire too, with a big eucalyptus going up in flames.

    Superb work Shaun.

    Reminds me of an abstract painting. This would be interesting to print and display in a large size.

    This is great. I love the abstractness (if that's a word):smile:
