Clouds

German photographer Rüdiger Nehmzow strapped himself into an airplane, put on an oxygen mask and took these cloud photographs four miles above ground, with the airplane doors wide open. BOLD!

Wow, incredible photos! Really breathtaking!

Guess strapping yourself to an airplane pays off!

WOW just thinking about that makes my stomach queasy, what a brave dude. at least the photos made the risk well worth it!!

Becca said...

Dorky confession - any time I'm in an airplane and look outside, I always think to myself "wow, I bet a cloud would make an amazing pillow" and these pictures completely show me why!

Michelle P said...

Wow! so pretty.

Katy Catron said...

So worth it! Beautiful results.

Kersey Campbell said...

Wow. I love art where the process is just as lovely/fascinating as the piece itself.

inspirationfiles said...

Thank God there are people like him to bring us photos like that!!

Joanna Goddard said...

meesch, i haven't thought about a neverending story in AGES. that was one of my favorite movies growing up:)

Ana Magdalena said...

these photos are divine!

Julia said...

I love clouds! Just posted a picture that I took of some the other day... I especially love fall clouds because they always seem really menacing, but they rarely produce scary storms.

Rachel Johnson said...

Wild! Love it.

SARAH said...

That's insane! Reminds me of the theory of duende: nothing is truly beautiful unless it risks death...which, I have to say, this guy pretty much did!

LB said...

Absolutely brilliant. I have a bit of a cloud obsession myself but I'm not so sure I could be so brave.

Shia said...

Totally worth it...these pics are amazing!! Anytime I fly I think...man I wish this double pane glass wasn't interfering with my photo opt.

Uh, yes. Bold. All for the sake of (some pretty stunning) art, I suppose!

What gorgeous photos, and what a great find! Have a beautiful weekend!

Rachel Marie said...

So inspiring to really do whatever it takes to follow your dreams. And whatever it takes to make your art happen!

Rebecca said...

These are amazing!

in dreams said...

people always make fun of me for saying i'd love to do that, so now i have someone who's a fantastic example of why it's awesome!

allie.noel said...

I'm a pilot, and no matter how many clouds I see, they are always beautiful and breathtaking in their own way. Never, ever gets old.

gorgeous!

Fashion Flirt said...

Oh, wow. Those are amazing. Not at ALL the experience I remember when I was leaning out of a plane with the door wide open... Granted, I also wasn't 4 miles above ground, I was 15,000 feet above the ground. And felt like I was going to hurl, because I was strapped to a man who was about to throw himself out of the plane.

Ah, skydiving.

Joanne Angelina said...

That is so amazing beyond words. When I went on the Edgewalk at the CN Tower, that was as close as I ever got to be close to the sky, and these images are as if one were in the heavens..
Thanks for sharing Jo, have a wonderful weekend!

PianoGirl said...

Oh these are so gorgeous!! I love clouds! And what a brave thing for him to do.

They almost look like the Universes own tie-dye art...super cool... wouldn't that be great wall paper for a kids play room? xo

Designs Good said...

Happy Wife said...

Cloud photos are some of my favorite! Those and ocean pics. I have a box full of polaroids I've taken of both and some of the best of clouds were taken from an airplane, mind you, I was sitting INside the place, and looking out the window!
Love these, thanks for sharing :)

Oh how beautiful. As a student of photography I loved and was moved by Alfred Stieglitz series 'Equivalent'- moving. This post reminds me of that. http://www.phillipscollection.org/research/american_art/artwork/Stieglitz-Equivalent_Series1.htm

Briana said...

So not to be a copycat or anything but I've always wanted to make a coffee table book of JUST clouds. I've always LOVED taking photos of them. Now would I do it 4 miles above the ground wearing an oxygen mask? He might just be more dedicated than me. ;-)

BONJOUR and HELLO said...

Oh my word! I don't know what's more amazing, how he gets those shots or the majestic pictures themselves. I want to make wall paper out of some of those shots (I'm kind of on a wallpaper kick right now). I would feel so revitalized everyday if my wall were one big cloud! Ha!

Thanks for sharing!

I mean this sincerely, some of the most beautiful images I've seen in a long long time. Stunning.

Labella Luxe said...

The cloud photographs are beautiful. They remind me of the ocean!

Kim Grey said...

Beautiful photos! Whenever I am lucky enough to get a window seat on a plane, I always wish I could capture the beauty of the clouds in photos. I guess it takes an oxygen mask and bravery to get such shots!

etoilee8 said...

I'd do it. It sounds amazing.

Bethany said...

JO, your blog always lift my spirits and gives me a smile, but today this post really helped me. I'm with my mom while she is in the hospital. She's very sick and I was feeling pretty glum and worried. Then I looked at your blog and the photos reminded me that the world is big and good and beautiful and that I'm not alone. Thank you for always bringing pretty and positive things to us. Xo. <3

Brave brave person. Definitely worth it, though I'd rather him than me! Just put a mini collection of things shaped like clouds on my blog, like mobiles and lights. Nothing quite so dramatic as these, I must say.

" allstate home insurance "

" progressive home insurance "


Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

1. Interior Design Seattle

2. Minimalist Interior Design

3. best interior design schools


I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
