Man-made rainbows over Pakistan.
Every now and then all the conditions are just right for the most amazing shots from the cockpit. This time, the sun was straight ahead in the right angle, another Airbus A340 passed straight over us and all the specific conditions in the atmosphere were just right for a thick contrail. All those things combined resulted in a contrail that showed all the colours of the rainbow for a few seconds.
Author: Born in The Netherlands in 1983, I wanted to become a pilot from a young age on.
At the age of 20, I found my first job on the Fokker 50 turboprop where I flew under various contracts in local operations in Africa and Afghanistan. At the age of 23 I started on the Boeing 737 and at the age of 28 I joined my present airline on the Boeing 747 Freighter where I fly now for over 6 years.
Operating in a global network with countless of destinations, I find joy in capturing the beauty and the world from above with my camera. A great admirer of natural light, I have the best office and views in the world from 35.000ft, being able to capture everything I see. The global network also gives me the chance to visit many cities in the world and I find more and more joy in capturing the moods and atmospheres I find in every corner of this planet as well.
