Colour Gallery

If there is one element that shouldn’t be missing in any landscape photograph it has to be a sky with clouds. Clouds add focal points, colour & drama. Sunny pictures with blue skies are unfortunately lacking this drama when no clouds are present. I like to take pictures often with just the clouds in them, I find them fascinating.

Clouds before & after storms are my favourite situations due to the rapid changing light producing some pretty spectacular imagery. Sunny skies with towering Cumulus also make for good pictures as do sunsets with a good covering of widely spread low lying clouds providing some fantastic colours once the sun disappears behind the horizon.

Sitting on top of a mountain watching the clouds move through valleys shrouding the towns and villages below in darkness whilst standing on a sun soaked peak is like being in heaven, it is something that makes me think how small & unimportant we all are compared to the power of nature. It’s a similar experience to flying but with the wind in your hair.

I am often in the fields around my home especially in Summer when the colour contrast between heaven & earth are balsam for the eyes.

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

– Rabindranath Tagore

“Clouds in the sky very much resembles the thoughts in our minds! Both changes perpetually from one second to another!”

– Mehmet Murat ildan

“Our mind is like a cloudy sky: in essence clear & pure, but overcast by clouds of delusions. Just as the thickest clouds can disperse, so, too, even the heaviest delusions can be removed from our mind.”

– Kelsang Gyatso

“The sky & the sun are always there. It’s the clouds that come & go.”

– Rachel Joyce

Did You Know?

Cumulonimbus cloud, or in English, Storm cloud, is possibly at fault when your flight is delayed. It is capable of producing lightning & other dangerous severe weather, such as severe wind, hail & occasional tornadoes. It is so unpredictable that pilots never fly through them, which often causes those flight delays.
