A look at some clouds …

25 Jun

Had some interesting skies the other day, so I shot a few as I drove around … It's been seldom enough this year … plain featureless blue or plain featureless grey, they're … well, boring. My Scottish Lassie would counsel me to crop them out, but frankly, I don't find that much interesting stuff at ground level on my usual rounds. So, when I get a good sky, I try to take advantage of it.
This first one was weird … when I got it into the computer, the rocks kept trying to turn purple … some quirk of the colour balance of the whole scene, I think. Anyway, it took a bit of fiddling to get them back to rock-colour.

And when I got home, and set the camera bag down on the table, His Majesty took up his rightful place, and everything was as it should be …

Cheers, all!

    Certainly a beautiful day. And such a nice cat. What camera did you use for the cat shot if you don't mind me asking.BTW I have run into you in so many comments sections over the years. So decided to do a friends request. I don't even know your name actually — for which I apologize.

    Nikon D3100, the same as the others. I now make a practise, BTW, of making an album in the "Photos" section, so people can see these things a bit bigger, if they want to … and the EXIF information usually is there, too, I think.Friends request granted, as you probably know by now. πŸ˜€

    Nice. I bought my apartment for the view, and nearly all of my photos are of the sky. It doesn't get much better than that.

    nice portrait of His Majesty (along with all the wonderful cloud photos) the shore is such a lovely stretch. one never knows the different scenes that will transpire for capturing, either. it is often very different.

    Lovely shots, dW :up:and El Gato is majestic! Your photos of the skies bring to mind a line from Rupert Brook's poem* .."Great clouds along pacific skies" … * I guess he meant 'vast' when he used the term pacific, but he might have meant "peaceful" …

    I love looking out of windows to calm my inner self and these photos have that same easing effect on me. And, as anyone will know if they happen to be my MyOpera comments stalker, I love cats. Your cat is quite handsome. :cat:
