Taking off is the most crucial aspect of any flight for me irrespective of the distance to be covered.
It is synonymous with a project take off. It may not necessarily mirror the end, but if done properly, it could be time and energy saving.
As the aircraft pulls out and begins its steady acceleration on the runway, I too get my camera on standby to capture this take off into the stretch of infinity.
Flying during the rainy season is one of frequent turbulence but it is also one of the fantastic cloud formations over lush landscapes as the condensation of gathering gas interacts.
Deserts are more interesting as there is no cloud, but one can look at the different shapes, patterns and forms of the vast land.
With thousands of pictures of different forms and shapes of cloud formation, end of one continent, mountains, seas, and a vast array of wasteland in the desert across the world, I think I have over the years collected quite a number of these ever-changing forms and new city development like the Federal Capital Territory of Nigeria, Abuja.
The complexity of these ever-changing forms and landscapes can be quite mesmerizing and I find myself communicating in flashes of pure inspiration!
Most times when I put my camera down, I tried to wonder what the Bible says in Psalm 118:23 about man and nature “This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.”
Nothing can be compared to God’s doing.
