ARCHIVE KENYA 26 – SUNRISE OVER STRATUS CLOUD

 

 


.
Top of a blanket of stratus cloud, just starting to be illuminated by the rising sun: photographed from an airliner over northern Kenya, inbound for Nairobi, 25 Sept 1979.

With shots from large aircraft, I just set as high a shutter speed as possible (to reduce vibrations from the plane), focused my lens on infinity, brought the lens as close as possible to the window (to minimalise reflections) – and hoped for the best!

Technique: Olympus OM-2 with 50mm Zuiko lens; Agfa CT18 slide film rated at 64 ISO.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I was shooting weather out of plane windows with a film camera back then too, and I never got over the wonder. This one has magic in it.
