Another image for my daughter's project.

Dreams

Considering the image: I am still looking for just the right image for a project my daughter has asked me to come up with for her.  The image I have in mind is a blue sky with these kinds of light, puffy clouds.  I was walking outside this evening and I noted that these clouds had bright white highlights with slightly darker shadows underneath.  I quickly grabbed the camera and tripod and ran up to my roof to get some clear frames composed.  This one worked out the best.  In fact, it might be just what we’re looking for!

Making the photograph:  This was a straightforward shoot.  I quickly composed on the most interesting portion of the formation and shot five quick frames.  After a couple of different compositions at 0EV, I dialed in +1EV to lighten the clouds because the light was falling fast and starting to color the clouds.  Post processing was simple with a bit of curves and slight sharpening before cropping and saving for the web.

Spring comes to the Charleston marsh

Wellspring

…It seems a bit different today

Open the window

hear the seagull

spring is finally here

Feel the warm breath of wind

caressing my face in the light

Fill my lungs and taste the air…

Stormy spring skies over Charleston, SC.

Promises

Into this house we’re born

Into this world we’re thrown

Like a dog without a bone

An actor out alone

Riders on the storm

A stormy night on Beresford Creek.

Storm over Beresford Creek

Rain falls on the creek like a million tiny bursts of hope.  While clouds race on toward distant dreams.  The ominous glow of lights against the stormy sky gives way.  Stars shine through, regal lords over the terrestrial tempest.  Sail on, intrepid soul.

Clouds over the Cooper river near North Charleston, SC.

Clouds over the Cooper

I am still working on the blue sky and clouds assignment for someone.  This image gets a lot closer to the result desired.  I’m still hoping to find a little more benign clouds, and perhaps fewer of them.  In the meantime, this made for a nice lunchtime walk in the park near where I work.
