Day 21 – Storm Clouds

25 Apr

It stormed here all day so getting out to take a photo was challenging, as soon as it let up and the storm clouds were starting to roll out I stepped out into my parking lot and set up my tripod. I love the reflection of the lights in the water, which is what I had in mind for a rainy day shot (just much more pronounced) so hopefully I can make that happen on another rainy day. I like the contrast in the sky as well, you can’t really tell if the storm was rolling in or out in the photo, but thankfully it was on its way out!.

Hope you enjoy the shot.

    I love storms, and that photo is awesome! It’s one I would definitely hang on my wall. I love the contrast between the navy of the clouds and the orange of the lights reflecting on the street.

    Wow! I’m in love with this picture. Not just the dark beauty of the colors, but also how balanced everything is. For instance, how the landscape with the cars and street sweeps up into the buildings on the right, with the sky mirroring it as it sweeps from the top and down to the left, with a perfect line of sunset prividing the seam. And again, the streetlights lend so much to the colors in the street, and the middle streetlight is almost perfectly in the middle of the shot, providing another balance.

    And you didn’t mention it, so I don’t know if you intended the effect or it’s just lucky happenstance, but there seems to be a slight blurring on the street level to each side, and the whole effect makes the buildings, street and cars look almost like miniture models set against that incredible sky. Gorgeous photo.

      Well you give me much more credit than I deserve 🙂 The street light in the middle was intentional, the cars were a happy accident but I did manipulate the photo to darken where the cars were because they stood out too much. The colors are what they are I didn’t change those but the blurring of the cars I did in photoshop as well.,

      I am glad you like it my dear!

    I’ve been on vacation so I am behind checking out the photo blogs. When I saw the title I was totally prepared for a black and white. Heh. You fooled me. Love it.

    I love the diversity of photos you’ve had on your Blog so far. What I can’t tell – was this during the day or at night? Either way its very cool!

      It was at night actually, right after sunset and so the sky wasn’t completely black and the clear sky in the background just came through all of the storm clouds. It was quite beautiful 🙂
