Here are two ‘portrait’ framed versions of yesterday’s shots from flight UA1142, shortly before landing at Fort Lauderdale airport. Flying over or just south of Eisenhower, Lehigh Acres, Florida and looking back to the south-west and the Gulf Coast of Florida and the southern end of Estero Bay, just south of Fort Myers. The vertical framing of this shot has changes the overall exposure with the layer of cloud above the aircraft more dark and ominous looking. The sun is setting on the far side of the cloud wall with rays of sunlight streaking through the gaps in the clouds lighting them up like they’re on fire while sheets of rain fall on the communities just inland of the coast. As with yesterday’s post, I’ve also included a black and white version.

Richard Davis – Photographer
Richard Davis is an International Photographer based in Katy, Texas. Katy, a former rice farming community and oilfield, is now more commonly viewed as a suburb 25 miles west of Houston.
Originally from Swindon in England, from an early age Richard wanted to travel. With a degree in Geophysics, he entered the oil exploration industry which, over the next 11 years, took him to live and work in Libya, South Africa, Brunei, Libya (again), Tunisia, Dubai, and Oman.
A change of track then brought him to the United States to lead a hazardous waste remediation project and that led into an IT Management career. While in Houston he met and married his wife, Karen. Richard's IT Management career took them to Paris, France, where they lived for two years before returning to Houston in early 2000.
In addition to his library of slide and print images from around the world, Richard went fully digital in 2006 when Canon introduced the EOS 5D and has continued to extend his digital image library. He uses a range of cameras but his current favorite remains the Canon EOS 5D Mk II.
Richard takes on a broad range of subjects and his images have appeared in corporate publications, local magazines and various web sites.
Richard lives with his wife Karen, of Karen Davis Design, and their two children (and 3 fish).
