The Backyard Sky



There were some fairly interesting clouds in the area yesterday evening, as small rain showers popped up here and there.  One was blocking the western sun, so I spent some time in the back yard shooting.   I have a dream to someday live  in a house with mostly unobstructed views to the horizon, at least towards the west, with perhaps some rolling hills and/or an interesting tree or two for foreground interest.   Unfortunately that is not the case at present.  Still, the clouds are nice no matter the setting.




I kind of like the one above in black and white.

  1. These are pretty spectacular, Charles. I always thought that clouds (by themselves) are a great subject for photographers and this is further proof. I’m surrounded by mature trees, making this kind of shot impossible from my house, so I usually go out to the Lake to shoot.

    Nice! Especially the first and last; these two make me feel like I’m flying.
