Photographer Captures Perfect Clouds Four Miles Up In the Sky

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

Rüdiger 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.

Rüdiger 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]
