    Most people are lucky to see the sky through their office window, let alone be in it. But Karim Nafani beholds more than just a few trees and clouds from his desk at work… he gets to see the whole world in shimmering panorama.And now the Dubai-based commercial airline captain and photographer has taken pictures of his cockpit and posted them online. He says he began the project in a bid to document his daily routine through a series of otherworldly images that look more like oil paintings than photographs and reveal exactly what it is like for pilots at 35,000 feet.


    Stunning view: Dubai-based Karim Nafani sees more than just a few trees and an open space from his desk at work…he gets to see the whole world in shimmering panorama

    Panorama: This photograph is of a 1st officer enjoying the sunrise at 37,000 feet above sea level en route to Chittagong Bangladesh


    Into the light: He says he began the project in a bid to document his daily routine through a series of stunning photographs that reveal exactly what it is like for pilots at 35,000 feet.The only trouble is, when it gets a bit stuffy, he can’t open the window as any normal office worker would.

    He said: ‘I take you far away from skyscrapers and high rise building roof tops this time to somewhere much higher: welcome to my daily office!’He gives the images their ethereal look through a technique called ‘exposure bracketing’ which involves setting up a DSLR camera to take at least three shots, each at a different exposure, before combining them to create the final print.

    Hometown: Karim took this picture as he flew over his hometown Dubai.The result looks more like an oil painting on canvas than a real-time digital photograph.Apart from the beautiful views that confront Karim each day he takes to the skies, his pictures also remind viewers of the incredible array of levers, panels and buttons that cover almost every inch of an aircraft’s cockpit.And, of course, he knows his way around them just as well as he does around those on his digital SLR camera.But Karim’s portfolio doesn’t end inside his cockpit.As a pilot he says he developed a keen interest in how the world looks from above.So he went about climbing to the top of buildings and skyscrapers to picture cities from above.

    Tallest in the world: Dubai has a skyline that is not only one of the world’s most iconic but also the tallest.
