Accompanying image for my Haiku Ominous

  1. Dark billowing clouds
    Gathered menace hovering
    to Paint the sunset

Photograph taken in Hermosillo, Son Mexico
Panasonic DMC-ZS7, 14 mm, 1/500 Sec, f/4.3, ISO 80

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    What wonderful gradation from deep deep blue to the soft peach and down to the dark rust……..Nice framing of this layer of clouds. gorgeous!!

  • Thank you Elizabeth. I don’t usually take close ups of cloud formations but this one was so intense I just had to zoom in. I’ve seen so many wonderful clouds during my evening walks that I finally bought a little camera to carry along with me. :-)

    gorgeous. I hate to be corny but it looks like a view of heaven. just amazing color and light in this

  • This a wonderful comment John, and not corny. I was also attracted to the mix of power and glory and ominous serenity of this scene. Heavenly definitely sums it all up.
