We were flyin' over the Solomon Islands, more or less, at not more than 5-6000 meters 'cause hard turbulence at the normal altitude cruise at 10000 meters.
The weather was really bad, with thunderstorm and powerfull wind, and the travel was a really bad experience for not less than the first 2 hours after the take off from Hong Kong.
In that image, with the classical window-airplane quality troubles there is giant ray of light on the Pacific Ocean.
There were 2 big cargo ships (i think, or maybe aircraft carriers) that were under the light.
I think that isn't common to see the only one ray of light over hundreds of miles of the Pacific Ocean exactley over 2 ships...
i' don't know what it means...maybe i should be work as a sailorman?
or a fisherman?
or i was just lucky!

ciao Paolo!sicuramente non è uno scatto e una situazione da tutti i giorni!che luce strana!!certo che deve esserci stato proprio una gran temporale...terribile esperienza...
Comunque dal punto di vista fotografico è molto interessante e ben vista!

An amazing view!!! It's impressive how the light breaks the darken on the sea.

Maybe you should just continue taking great photographs? Good aerial pov & excellent capture of this unusual light phenomenon. Tfs!

Well to be true with you it is not so uncommon as you think to have 2 ships right in the light spot over the Pacific on the contrary this happens all the time... jokking..
Interesting setting mostly like some 'dark mood' Rembrandt painting but with lack of some motif - still the result is good in a graphic way of thinking - maybe mostly like something in a dream..

Interessante immagine che mi ricorda un quadro impressionista. Le sfumature di colore e di luce la rendono particolarmente accattivante.

Quelle drôle de texture! Mais les couleurs sont très belles et très profondes. Ce qui est bien, c'est que malgré ce flou intentionnel, on arrive à deviner de quoi il s'agit.

Strana foto, Paolo.
A prima vista non ci si capisce niente, e mi ero detta : ma guarda che strano, anche Paolo ci mostra l'ennesimo tramonto senza senso rispetto alle finalità di TE... impossibile!
E infatti nella nota si è chiarito (anche letteralmante!) tutto!
Quindi in conclusione... grazie per aver condiviso questa foto e questa esperienza ma solo nel racconto, ché in concreto non la invidio affatto!

What a bizarre landscape! Alien encounter experience? :-)

I agree with Jack's (jri) remark about the Rembrandt look, as this resembles very much a rather mystical oil painting. The unusual light and shadow effects are so dramatic. The vertical format is well chosen here for added impact. Well captured.

This is an inspiring image. Good quality for a shot from the inside of a plane. Maybe this just means that you where a the right place ot the right moment for a nice picture... ;o)

the soft focus and soft colors are really great. this looks almost like an abstract painting.
original take on a common theme
really well done.
