Santiago Borja is a South American airline pilot by profession and a photographer by hobby, but sometimes he gets to combine the two. Recently he’s captured some phenomenally awesome photos of massive thunderstorms taken while he was flying at an altitude of 37,000 feet.
“Storms are tricky because the lightning is so fast, there is no tripod and there is a lot of reflection from inside lights,” he admits.
“I like this photo so much because you can feel the amazing size of the storm and its power,” Borja says. “But at the same time it’s wonderful how peacefully you can fly around it in still air without touching it.”
