Photographer Captures Perfect Clouds Four Miles Up In the Sky

By // September 2, 2011 // Posted in Photography, Video

RĂ¼diger Nehmzow means “Man With Big Balls Made of Steel” in German. After watching this video of him taking photos of clouds from the open door of a plane, four miles up in the sky, it can’t mean anything else.

RĂ¼diger straps himself into a plane, opens the door at 6000 meters and, equipped with his camera, an oxygen mask and jacket to protect him against the sub-zero temperatures, hunts perfect photos of clouds. Looks like fun to me and the photos look even better. [Nehmzow via PetaPixel]
