Storm Meets Clouds

Probably should’ve framed the scene different, but I’m happy with the result.

I like the sense of shifting light, as well as how the storm appears to be pushing away the lower clouds.

There’s a colour shift here that I also like. The closest cliff has a bit more green in it than the valley and cliffs behind it, and (in part due to other colouring) it feels warmer.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-fifty-seventh Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Getting Away“.

I feel this one fits as it’s away from where I live. Not too far away, but far away enough to feel like somewhere completely different.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

However, for July each challenge is guest-curated, and each theme has been announced.
Rusha Sams of Oh The Places We See is curating this one.

On July 3rd John Steiner of Journeys With Johnbo curated with the theme of “On the Water“.

On July 10th Anne Sandler of Slow Shutter Speed curated with the theme of “Black and White“.

The rest for July are as follows:

July 24th – Beth Smith of Wandering Dawgs: “Along Back Country Roads”

July 31st – Ana Campo of Anvica’s Gallery: “Postcards”

I recommend participating in the challenges. They’re enjoyable and allow room for interpretation of the theme without straying too far. If you don’t participate, then I recommend that you at least check out what others of the Lens-Artists community are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    Nice capture of the storm!


  2. I certainly did enjoy this post. Thanks for taking time to find something that is a perfect getaway. We saw a similar scene in Maine this past month with the interchange of light and shadow. You’ve captured the storm well, making it a getaway in many respects. Thanks, too, for the information about the Photo Challenges. I agree — they’re interesting as well as fun. Hope you’ll submit something next week as well.
