This image is part of a series that I have been working on for a little while. Where I live we can get some amazing clouds, probably because it is often very windy and being in the country, very little haze from pollution.
Robyn from Captivate Me included me in the B&W Challenge where you post 5 consecutive B&W images and nominate a person to take up the challenge with each post, so this is my Day 1 of 5. In turn I am nominating Herman from Herman van Bon Photography. As Robyn has said, this is NOT a have to participate challengebut something that might be fun, but only if you have the time and inclination 🙂
Hello again everyone and hope that you are all well!! After an extended and unplanned absence from the blog I am finally posting my first image for 2015 🙂 Taken about 30 minutes after sunrise, the bubbles on the water surface are from a large flock of various water birds I disturbed (accidentally) as I came around the tree line.
I haven’t had the chance for either taking photos or posting due to moving house and work being really busy- but we all know what that is like… a week in we are getting there (slowly!). Today I needed to do some ‘soul soothing’ so went out to one of my favourites – Pyalong. Probably a bit too tired for photos or processing but still good to have camera back in hand with a wonderful sky again. Here is one from this morning…
Nulla Vale shortly after sunrise a few weeks ago. Today has been a horrible day (with night to come) here in Victoria – fires all around, watching the wind and warning app on the phone, radio is on and fingers crossed. Thoughts to those impacted already.
Last week there were thunderstorms at the end of most of the hot days. This was taken early evening as a storm was building – the sunburst was amazing as you could almost reach out and touch it such was the texture of the light.
Anyone who has watched the tennis will know that Melbourne and hence Victoria has endured a week long heat wave. It has been truly disgusting weather, as I post this blog, am waiting for the cool change due in a few hours and hoping for no fires. I think I have chosen these as the heat is so claustrophobic and these are cool and open spaces. Metered for the sky and handheld, taken about 30 minutes before sunrise.
This was last Friday morning – it was an amazing light show with the rays of light sweeping across the landscape from left to right. When I saw this, it was a quick grab of the camera, so taken handheld.
A bit of an abstract post today, but I wanted to share the amazing clouds from Friday. The day started off very windy and then it steadily grew in strength. By 4.30 pm when I took the image of the dam surface the wind was averaging 63 kph and gusting at over 90 kph – it got worse during the evening.
