(Day 60) 'Whisked' sky

We took the dog for a walk in the early evening (there's an oxymoron for you - our dog has 77 acres to roam around on, but what she likes best is to be attached to a leash and taken for a walk along the country road - go figure!). Following the ABC principle, I noticed the interesting cloud formation and took some photos. It appeared to me that the clouds had been 'whisked' by the tree on the right, which itself reminded me of a whisk broom.

(18-55mm  f22  1/15 sec  ISO200)

This is my favourite shot I've seen here yet! I got exactly the same impression from the clouds and the tree. Wonder what it would look like if you turned it upside down? ;o) I love the B&W too, great choice!

@Kate - thank you.

@Krista - I hadn't thought of turning it upside down but will try it :) Thanks for your comment and for following.

I'm amazed by the clouds.

Thumb up for the color and composition.

Rick said...

@M.Hassan - thank you. I had also taken a couple of colour shots but I liked the effects better in b&w.

@Liz - thank you; sometimes we're just presented with an opportunity and we only need capture it.

@anonymous(1) - I guess that's why it's an art where beauty is in the eye of the beholder - and your eyes are the only ones that matter for you. Thank you.

@anonymous(2) thank you. * blush *
