Beautiful skies and landscapes photographed by a 747 pilot.

Christiaan van Heijst is a 747 pilot or if you will, the flying Dutchman. Armed with his Nikon D800 and a passion for the skies, Christiaan captures “many different parts of the planet through [his] camera and immortalize the beauty of the places [he] visit[s]." Many of his pictures feature thunderstorms, full moons, sunset, and the beauty of natural light in all its forms from a perspective that very few get to clearly witness.         

Fortunately, this talented photographer makes his hobby available for the world to see. Check out some of his photos below and be sure to check out his his websiteInstagramPBase500px, and Facebook.
