I was traveling from Atlanta to home. The weather looked perfect when we arrived at the airport even though there was a chance of rain in the forecast. While boarding, however, the rain started to fall. We pulled away from the gate and I was hopeful that we would be on time. I was sitting in a bulkhead seat with just my iPad reading a book. My stuff, including my camera, was in the overhead bin.
And, then we got parked on the Tarmac. There was a cloudburst and we were waiting for the weather to improve. We were probably sitting there for about 15 to 20 minutes, give or take. I looked out my window and there was a lovely scene caused by rain and scratches on the window. I changed to the camera app on my iPad and started taking a few shots outside of my window. As you can see, I caught just a little bit of the inner window when I took the shot.
After that I went into a couple of photo apps and enhanced the image. The first app that I used was Snapseed where I changed the lighting to a more dramatic look. Then I went into the app, Alien Sky, and added a bit of a beacon light effect.
After this, I tried a different photo of the control tower and added a bit of lightning using the Alien Sky app with this result.
By this time, we were ready to take off. The time on the tarmac passed quickly since I was able to capture and then enhance a few images from my journey. And, I didn't regret that my usual camera was neatly packed away in the overhead bin.
