Pilot Captures Incredible Photos Of Lightning And Thunderstorms From His Cockpit
By Izza Sofia, 16 May 2017
We have seen our fair share of storm and lightning photographs, but these shots from pilot Santiago Borja may top them all.
Taken from the airplane’s cockpit at just the right moments, the image captured a powerful thunderstorm forming above the Pacific Ocean. If a photo-snapping pilot sounds alarming, do not worry. He indulges in his hobby only while off-duty.
His shot of a raging cumulonimbus over the Pacific earned him third place in the National Geographic‘s ‘Nature Photographer of the Year’ competition last year.
From lightning bolts to incredible storms, he displayed a lot of skill in his photographs considering the turbulent weather and near pitch-dark setting.
You can see more of his travel and storm photos on his Instagram or website.
