Athens was hit by a surprising thunderstorm that afternoon and this is the result: spectacular effects as the sun was trying to peek through the clouds. I love the sun ray that points directly to the airport. At the bottom-right you can see the port of Rafina. The photo was taken from LH A321 D-AIRX (yes, that's the retro jet) from ATH to FRA as LH3383. [Canon EOS 40D, EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L IS USM lens]

I know that you are great with selecting very clean windows on most of your flights, but now seeing that you managed to have the sun pointing at the airport...simply stunning! Well done, Tony! Best regards, Walter

Call me corny, but the rays of light adds a spiritual touch to the picture.
