We were heading east over Kansas, somewhere near Liberal (LBL VORTAC) at Flight Level 370, on our way to Dulles when I shot this. The effect of the darkening sky ahead, the cloud deck below and the full moon made for a beautiful night sky. This view didn’t last very long, by the time we got over Missouri it was gone. I quickly grabbed my camera and placed it up on the glare shield supported by my bean-bag mount, The Pod and fired away. The ride was smooth, no turbulence or chop to speak of so shooting at 1/15th of a second wasn’t a factor. I shot about 10 frames before the light changed enough to make the scene to dark and unusable.
I love the simplicity of this shot, it’s very peaceful and calming. To me, it seems as if heaven might be on the other side.
