Remark Photographer
VH-VQK (cn 2651) Off the south coast of Borneo flying through high cloud associated with distant storm cells our A320 truly becomes an electric jet. Amazing display of static electricity flowing through our jet in relatively smooth air makes for an amazing sight and luckily had me gear along. EOS1DMK3 14/2.8 II

A little scary too!!

A visitor from - posted Thu August 23, 2012:
The slow exposure made it possible to see the whole show all at once. Pretty nifty photography there. I used to fly small planes. Never was up during storms, but would love to see this phenomina in person.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu November 24, 2011:
Can't wait for this to be my office next year. JQ Cadetship here i come! Simply an amazing shot.

A visitor from - posted Tue October 18, 2011:
This couldn't have been a time exposure or the pilots would be blurred. I can tell you one thing, Airbus are fanatics about bonding everything on the aircraft. EVERYTHING has a bonding wire attached to it. For good reason, apparently

The justaposition of consummate control and the willfulness of nature is what strikes me most.

A visitor from - posted Fri September 18, 2009:
Great balance between the prosaic cockpit interior n the amazing natural phenomenon, so close together.

A visitor from Spain posted Sat July 18, 2009:
Long time ago I'hve got the same during a procedure to Toul airport in France on a T33... all the cockpit lighted by static electricity... Very impressive!

Amazing shot Darren, as always. I am wondering how you can take such shots in those situations. Well done! Mehdi.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 15, 2009:
Really stunning!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 15, 2009:
One thing to keep in mind is that this photo was exposed over several seconds. This means that there are never that many sparks on the windscreen at any one time.

A visitor from - posted Wed July 15, 2009:
St Elmo in the house! Cool shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 15, 2009:
It's nothing but awesome. Never seen a shot like this before!

A visitor from Slovenia posted Wed July 15, 2009:
Woow! I have never seen such a good catch of the St Elmo's Fires. Fantastic! The cockpit ambience is great too!

A visitor from - posted Wed July 15, 2009:
Stunning photo, sure you weren't on the set of a sci-fi movie warping across space! best flightdeck shot i've ever seen.
Does this happen very often? and is it only seen at the front or also along the sides of the aircraft?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 15, 2009:
Amazing shot Darren!
