Pic(k) of the week 7: Fluffy clouds over the Gulf - Fujifilm XF50mm f2 lens
We finally got to see some clouds and even got a few drops of rain in Dubai, this week! Coming from Central Europe, it is hard to believe one can be excited about this!
The image below was shot from the passenger cabin near the island of Bahrain. With the more dramatic clouds at the horizon, the fluffy clouds in the foreground felt like a soft bed one wants to jump in at the end of a hard working day! Although as an airline pilot I see scenes like these almost on a daily basis, I still don't them for granted.

For the ones that missed it, my review of the new XF50mm f2 lens can be found here.
I'm writing this the day before I'll be leaving for the snow; my yearly trek to the Alpes for hopefully some great alpine skiing. Just like every year, I'll be taking a camera with me and this year it will be the brand-new compact Fujifilm X-A3 camera! More to come... Remember: "Every cloud has a silver lining"
