The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

A Glow in the Sky

Sunrise Over the Atlantic Ocean

I don’t know how many Atlantic Crossings I’ve made in my flying career without researching my logbook but I never tire of seeing the color of the light before the sun appears in the morning. Yesterday was no different as we traveled from the United States’s East Coast to London.

I knew we were in for another pleasant surprise as the moon rose first. On its initial appearance along the horizon you could see the sun beginning to light just a sliver of the moon in a fiery red. As the moon continued to rise the color slowly changed from red to white as you see in the photo above.

Not much longer after I made this photo the sky quickly turned bright white and the morning show was over.

    WOW! I recently flew from London to LA and we chased the sunset for most of the flight. The view wasn’t as good from the back of the plane but I was thinking how cool it must be as a pilot to have a front row seat for shows like these.
