A lush bank of trees silently witnessed the extraordinary sight above them. Due to atmospheric conditions, a fallstreak hole had formed in already unusual cloud formations, possibly induced by a passing aircraft. I felt really privileged to witness this event at the right moment, the effects being quite short-lived. Not being on a photo shoot meant I didn’t have my DSLR with me, so instead I captured this moment using my smartphone.
