Sunset After The Storm:Skywatch Friday








After the very heavy thundery weather we got yesterday, we were treated to this wonderful sunset ( of course up here in summer the sun barely sets) its chucking it down with rain right now as I post this too.

Pretty! I never see skies like this in New Jersey. Lots of trees and buildings here. You captured the drama well, especially in your second photo.

I wonder how that last photo would look upside down. It's so fiery!

Gennasus said...

Great skies and lovely colours.

We've seen some pretty dramatic clouds the last few days in our bit of Scotland. Whereabouts are you?

Jane, you had the right time to take the nice sky shots. They are so nice.

However, I would like to have one comment for the first photos. You have so dark foreground because you don't use graudated ND filter to balance exposure. If you use it, your photo will be better.

Cheers,
DSM

These are seriously gorgeous images. You really should put a copyright on these. I would hate to see them turn up where they shouldn't.

Thanks everyone, thanks DSM -I think those filters will only fit SLR and Digital SLR camera's though, I could do it in PS maybe. I shall think about that Babooshka thanks:) I live in Sutherland about 1hr north of Inverness.

Amazing. "Thundery skies," I like that. Thor's hammer, indeed.

We've just been getting the gloomy skies down here - so much for 'southern' sun!

Jeri said...

Great shots, the colors are amazing!

Jane said...

Thanks-yes I think we do have some bad weather over the entire country J, one minute we are in a heatwave the next minute we are almost flooded.

Arija said...

Worth having a storm to get those skies.
