That's not to say that you can't capture some great wacky colours and atmospherically jetset views or anything. It's just that...everyone takes that shot, you know? Including us. Every time. There's no shame in it.
However, step forward Alex Merga, who has just RUINED THE ENTIRE ENTERPRISE FOR EVERYONE EVER by nonchalantly peering out over the wing of his 757 flight from London to New York and taking a casual shot of OH, THE MILKY WAY. Way to raise the bar to an incredibly high standard there, Merga.
Actually, the process sounds far from nonchalant, and it sounds like he had to hunker down and do some pretty intense photography tweaking. He may even have missed out on one of the inflight meals, who knows? Either way, the story is told in more detail right here. Nicely done, sir. Can we interest you in a blurry sunset over Cleveland? No? Oh well, suit yourself. (thanks to @Co_Semie for the link).
