Written by


After seeing Rudiger Nehmzow’s incredible cloud photography featured on My Modern Met and Behance it was too impressive not to share on the Sifter as well.

These remarkable shots were taken from a height of 20,000 ft (6,000m) from the open doors of a small prop plane (video below). The location was Manaus, Brazil and Nehmzow used: a Rolleiflex Hy6 with Leaf AFi 7 (digital back – 33MP) and a Alpa 12 TC with Leaf AFi-II 10 (56MP). Edition prints of these beautiful captures can be found on Rudiger’s official site: www.nehmzow.de/edition-prints/
