An Evening of Clouds: 5 of 5 by 

I thought I’d try something a little different. I don’t normally shoot anything abstract or parts of objects, I usually like to zoom out a capture the whole subject in one shot. But on this one particular evening, as the sun was creeping over the horizon, it lit up the clouds that had been dumping lots of rain on us. I stood outside in awe of all the shapes and cloud types that weren’t so obvious when the sun was covered by them, but now, as the sun pushed it’s light through a gap, and with all of it’s wonderful colour, it revealed the stunning shapes of the underbelly of the storm. The colours, shapes and shadows encouraged me to grab my camera, and thus I shot just bits a pieces of the clouds that were around me on that night, and as the sun went further down, the colours changed. This is one image from 5 that are in my gallery. You may enjoy them or you may not, but to me they are a reminder of that amazing display on that one evening.

Passionate photographer who loves to shoot seascapes and discover unknown and unseen treasures along Victoria’s coastline. Innovate not Imitate is the philosophy I try to shoot by. Panoramic photography is my forte, but sometimes I have to force myself in to shooting other formats to best compliment the scene.

    Another amazing image. There is such slow, unfolding drama in the skies that many people miss.

    Look to the skies people !
