A Pilot Captured This Spectacular View Of Thunderstorm From Above The Clouds And It’s AMAZING

Believe me, when I say this: I haven’t seen such a spectacular view of a thunderstorm before!

Santiago Borja is a photographer and pilot and he took this photo from the cockpit of an airplane.The photo was captured 37,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean, south of Panama.

Makes you scream Wow, doesn’t it?


The pilot said that it’s a difficult task to get the perfect shot in darkness.

Here’s what he said:

Storms are tricky because the lightning is so fast, there is no tripod and there is a lot of reflection from inside lights.

I like this photo so much because you can feel the amazing size of the storm and its power, but at the same time, it’s wonderful how peacefully you can fly around it in still air without touching it.


Borja is not new to this. Last year, he captured a photo of another thunderstorm near Venezuela.

Have a look:


Santiago Borja captured this using Nikon D750 camera. He is a big fan of photography and an officer in LATAM Ecuador Airlines.

He shared his views about his love for Mother Nature:

I primarily enjoy nature, landscape, and cityscape photography. Since I carry my camera everywhere, I started trying to capture storms and in-flight experiences some time ago combining my two greatest passions: flying and photography.


Keep them coming, Santiago! The photo was superb.
