The structure of the underside of a cloud layer is so interesting, if you look really hard just off centre there’s a passenger aeroplane flying along.
I use a lot of these images as reference, or even as sky backgrounds in my comics.
It really helped that the deck of the Enmore house faced west, so you could get these sort of sunsets on stormy days. The light there reflecting up off the underside of the clouds. It really looks like something apocalyptic is happening off in the distance.
This was one of those amazing moments when light, shadow and colour all combine just so. All the shadows on the clouds match the background sky so well, they look somewhat unreal.
More experiments with framing clouds with silhouetted foreground objects. I really miss that house. Aside from the deck, and the expanse of sky it offered, there was an avocado tree in the backyard which produced the most richly flavoured fruit I’ve ever had.
Ahh, the beautiful freedom of clouds, through a tear in the wire. If you look really hard you can see unicorns frolicking and farting rainbows as well.
Playing around with composition between geometric and organic.
There’s a nice contrast here, literally, between the metallic wire and the soft organic forms of the clouds.
As much as I love high dynamic range photography, there really is something beautiful about shots like this. This is another of those accidental gems I discovered while going through the shots used in a panorama.
A 36 degree rotation, and all the angles are altered.
This image was from one of my panoramic shoots. It’s nice the way you get these alignments in the built environment, just through chance.
