Thwarted

A funny thing happened on the way to the waterfront late this afternoon, where I had hoped to go make some sunset photos. A few clouds had moved in a little earlier and I thought they were taking up their positions to create a beautiful sunset. Then, as though a giant hand was put up in the east, the clouds started to pile up above us and it became obvious that there would be no visible sunset. So I didn't go to the waterfront after all and I captured this view of the sky from our backyard. (I brought out the blue somewhat to accentuate the clouds). I'll see how things shape up tomorrow.

Rick this is an amazing shot, sometimes when we don't get what we're in search of we capture something equally if not much more beautiful. This shot is at par with your sunsets, equally as beautiful! The blues are fantastic, even if you accentuated them. :-) Have a fantastic week!

It may not be the sunset but it surely didn't disappoint! Cloud formations are so cool to photograph and yours is exceptional.

Thanks Joseph !

Thank you Stewart - reminds me of a song "You can't always get what you want ... "

Yes, Susan - and I traded a sunset for these, but I think it was worth it.

Rick said...

You're absolutely right Darlene - sometimes what we find surprises us. pleasantly. Thank you, and have a good one too.
