Capturing the sky
This week's subject is capturing the sky. I enjoyed her pointers on sky photography so much that I decided to look through my own photo archives to see what I could find to post. I've done some selecting and cropping to come up with some images from trips we've taken to the big sky country of New Mexico, Arizona, and Nebraska, with a couple from Mazatlan thrown in.
These first two were taken on a stormy evening in Nebraska. I like the reflection of the wet road in the one above and the amazing light in the sky in the one below.
These two were taken outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico and obviously the subject is the clouds.
Is this a sky photo or a photo of the rocks? I like the way I've cropped it to show the big rocks but the even bigger sky.
Trite sunset photo somewhat uplifted by the verticals.
Here the subject really is the variety of cactus but there is a tiny daylight moon in the sky that I think adds to the photo. Can you see it?
I'm going to link this post to Kat's Capture the Sky series and you can visit there via the Exploring with a Camera button to see other peoples takes on capturing the sky.
