Из офиса голландца Кристиана ван Хейста открывается отличный вид на всю планету. Его он снимает чуть ли не каждый день, и это не надоедает.

Кто из нас не пытался сделать из иллюминатора самолета удачный кадр с бескрайними полями, убегающими вдаль реками или обволакивающими фюзеляж самолета облаками? Ну или хотя бы просто сфотографировать из неба звездное небо. Обычно лучше всего в кадре выходит крыло самолета. У Кристиана ван Хейста все это получается намного лучше. Во-первых, снимает он из кабины пилота, да и делает это на профессиональную камеру. В своем блоге он не только выкладывает тематические фотоотчеты с перелетов по всему миру, рассказывает о специфике профессии, но также выкладывает мало кому понятные диаграммы и таблицы. Поэтому лучше начать с его инстаграма и посмотреть, как выглядят Афганистан, Сибирь и, например, Сахара под ногами фотографа.

Moonlight cruise; Flying high over Northern Siberia on a night where the full moon illuminates the Earth’s atmosphere. A slow sunrise is about to start at the very right of the picture, but flying this high up North, it often takes many hours for the sun to rise up any further and do her work. Having the cockpit all for myself for these minutes, I feel privileged, happy and still amazed that Im able to see the world from this perspective, all by myself. Scenes and sceneries that will never been seen again, never be captured again. My office, my camera. #cockpit #flightdeck #boeing #747 #boeing747 #cargolux #pilot #pilotlife #pilotsofinstagram #piloteyes #crewlife #moon #moonlight #atmosphere #stratosphere #sunrise #flying #aviation #flight #avgeek #aviation4u #aviationporn #boeingfanpage #moonlovers #jpcvanheijst #nikon #d800

The bright milky way is slowly setting over the Pacific Ocean, with the city lights of San Francisco and the Bay Area of California in the distance, on our flight from Anchorage to Los Angeles. The billions and billions of stars that form our Galaxy are visible as a milky band along the night sky, hence called the milky way. For about 6 months of the year, the night sky is facing the galactic core; the brightest part that gives the best photographic opportunities for long exposures. #galaxy #nightphotography #nightsky #night #stars #star #milkyway #sfo #sanfrancisco #california #usa #boeing #747 #cockpitview #flightdeckview #cockpit #view #avgeek #aviation #flight #flying #instagood #instaaviation #instagramaviation #instaphoto #instastars #instanight #jpcvanheijst #nikon #d800

Mount Ararat; the highest mountain of Turkey with her peak up to 5137 meters during a winter afternoon. According to the Old Testament in the Bible and the Koran, this is the place where Noah's (or Nuh's) Ark with all the animals finally landed/touched land again after the world was flushed with a giant flood, around 4500 years ago. Although no scientific evidence has been found of a giant flood, let alone a flood that could carry a huge ship up to the side of a mountain, many believe the flood and ship have actually existed and many expeditions have been, and still are, launched to find evidence of the remains of this ship. None the less a great story that has captured the mind of people for countless generations and thousands of years. #turkey #armenia #armenian #ararat #winter #mountain #landscape #bible #koran #noah #ark #view #jpcvanheijst #nikon #d800 #instapic #instagood #instadaily #biblical #history #instapic

‘Crossing the Hump’ From 1942 until the end of the Second World War in 1945, allied pilots cynically named their extremely dangerous and deadly flights over the Himalaya mountains as crossing ‘The Hump’. Transporting supplies from India to China, the crews risked and lost their lives by the hundreds in harrowing adventures that are nearly forgotten those days. After the Japanese armed forces booked incredible and rapid successes in Asia by 1942, they eventually occupied entire French Indochina and Burma (today Myanmar), thereby blocking all supply routes from allied India to China. To make sure China was not completely overrun by the highly successful and motivated Japanese Empire forces, the allies began… Read more —> https://jpcvanheijst.com/blogs/2017/03/541853-crossing-the-hump #blog #aviation #flying #himalaya #mountains #thehump #sunset #landscape #story #history#avgeek #flight #orange #photoaday #blogger #ww2 #jpcvanheijst #nikon #d800 #instablog #instablogger #instagood #instadaily #instaphoto
