An active sky can add movement and colour and drama to a photograph … and sometimes skies ARE the photograph, as the landscape pales in comparison to the dance of light and cloud that is happening above. This one taken in Normandy added such beauty to our autoroute drive.
Driving the Cape Breton Trail in Nova Scotia we saw some beautiful turbulent skies, this one at 4 Mile Beach at Aspey Bay.
While my daughter and husband sat up front chattering I was busy in the back snapping shots through the window at 100 km/hr of some tremendous skies over Alberta.
I only had to step onto my back deck to capture the next two shots in the Eastern Counties of rural Ontario. Driving the north shore of Lake Superior we drove towards this active cloudscape.
The lighting was so beautiful I practically trampled my sister when we arrived at Pointe du Grouin in Brittany … I was afraid the light would disappear, as has been known to happen when one is too slow on the uptake.
I stopped roadside on the way home along Highway 34 to capture this sunset …
Some of the most beautiful light I have ever experienced was in South America – this one taken in the Chilean fjords.
I love the clouds in this shot outside St. David’s in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
And this one was taken on the coastal path in west Wales looking out to the Celtic Sea …
This last one, for now, was taken at Otway Sound in southern Chile.
