Dubai-based commercial airline captain Karim Nafani, who has access to some of the best bird’s eye views of the world ever, thanks to his day job, has a DSLR and is not afraid to use it.

The pictures he takes up in the air take on their glowy golden hue from exposure bracketing — Nafani sets up the camera to take at least three shots, each at a different exposure, before combining them to create the final print. Pretty cool, if we might say.
