Stopping on my way home this morning from shopping

Post by Matt Quinn » Wed Nov 15, 2017 3:00 am

Glad I had my camera. The clouds were moving very fast. A few seconds before I had parked and got out my camera, the distant hills on the right in the bottom photo were aflame; that was what caught my eye. Then the curtain dropped fast. This was good enough. C&C welcome. Matt

I can see why you stopped to take these, there are so many stories here! I might work the clouds more but it's subjective. So beautiful! S-

Nice subtle tree images, and yeah, I know what you mean about that quick-changing light. Did you get any with the flaming hills in color? I love your black and whites and can see that lighting effect in them (particularly #3), but am always drawn to that dramatic chiaroscuro effect in color.

Steve, Minnie,
Apologies: been "holiday busy" with folks and stuff. Getting back to pM today.

Thanks for the comments. I didn't want to overwork the clouds Steve, but will go back, out of curiousity, to play. No, Minnie, no color. Only had my Leica M. And the sun had gone from the trees on the hilltop on the bottom right; they were in shadow when I took the photo. I couldn't stop traffic to get across the road; somehow, folks just don't understand photographers' needs and wants. We suffer. Matt
