More I-10 zen

Carrying a camera and playing with the settings, shooting the sky. It makes you be more observant of what is around you. For instance, if I had not been taking cloud shots on our drive home from Texas, I might have told you that the sky the whole way was partly cloudy.
But shooting cloud pictures, I realized there were breaks in the clouds for a dozen or more miles. After one of those breaks we came upon these teenagers -- well they weren't babies but they weren't towering dads either. They were stretching their aspirations into the heavens, but strong winds out of the south were keeping them from growing into manhood. We came upon them somewhere around Lake Charles, on our west to east journey back to New Orleans.

Just some of the thing you notice, when you have a glass eye.

Wow!! What a shot!! How did you capture that? Those clouds are awesome and the colors are so unusual...

Thanks for the compliment on my sorting photo yesterday - I had an awful lot of fun taking those - and then I passed the camera to my husband and did some sorting myself!!

Hi Steve! Back home and profiting from the Portugal’s Day holiday, I’m trying to catch up your posts.
Great posts for the fabulous cloud pictures! The blue Heron is gorgeous and the sunset stunning!
Thanks also for your comments at Blogtrotter, which has now landed in Santiago de Compostela, Spain!
Hope you enjoy, and have a nice rest of the week!

I absolutely agree with you about cloud ahots. I used to rush out for the sun, but now I utilise the clouds more. No two are alike and ieven a straight auto shot can produce some magnificent tones and shadows. Very artistic and imaginative shot.
