    Clouds - 2019

    Lots of clouds and lots of images this evening. Better get to it. What it looked like hen I got out to the pond... A change in perspective can really change how things look. Here is basically the same sky as above but just the upper left part of it... And now the right side of the image alone... Now back to the color, the orange... And to the red... This last one is just for me. You probably would not believe just ho late this was. All incidental light...

    Clouds - 2019

    I could nit-pick and say I wish the clouds would have been 50 miles farther east this evening. But it as good to have some color to play with so I am OK with how things turned out. Some orange... Some red... And this as shot just before the main billboard lit off. I purposely shot it dark, trying to keep the deep reds and oranges from blowing out the sensor. It made for a rather dark image but I got the contrast of the colors correct across the image...

    Seems the NWS is having some network issues, so I have no idea what KIND made it up to today. But even if it as a tick cooler than yesterday, it felt a lot more uncomfortable in the humidity department.

    Clouds - 2019

    Was not sure hat this sunset was going to look like. Was not sure if the system west of me would give me anything. When I got to the pond... Close to sunset... There was a small and brief red flash. It as only due south of me and did not last long. I combo'd it with the western horizon color here... A close up of the western color just before the closest billboard lit up and messed with the colors...

    Ooops. I am a bit late getting the images downloaded, sorted and crammed down so these are from the sunset from 9-7. If you look at these at a later date. Kind of interesting to watch the clouds decrease as the sun sets. When I got to the pond, looking south east... Pre-sunset... Post sunset... And the late red flash. Not much red and very diffuse and short-lived. Looking at the satellite now I am amazed it was as good as it was...

    Clouds - 2019

    Tonight was about the post sunset color. Starting out with the sky behind going to yellow... With the red tinging in on the blue sky, it started the almost violet color up... Switch to vertical to get all the violet color and the way I was feathering the GND kind of fooled the white balance of the camera again. Still made the contrast of clouds correct but the color might be a bit off. I still like the result... And as the color was leaving the sky overhead, of course the horizon goes super saturated...

    I wonder where that boundary/front was? Oh yeah, checking the visual satellite at sunset said, "Right Over My Head".

    Clouds - 2019

    This evening was quite interesting out at the pond. Some cloud shadows when I got out to the pond... I like this one because I think I actually followed the rule of thirds for once... I like all the different colors in this image. The Moon also takes it a step farther... I might have gone overboard with the contrast in this one... Walking back to the car at the end I looked to the south-southwest and I could not pass up a shot that went from the horizon to past overhead at 16mm. The Moon looks like more of a sensor error but I think it is cool when you know what it is...

    Clouds - 2019

    All of the clouds disappeared as the sun sank to the horizon. I had to find other things to look at. Here the Sun was doing a balancing act on top of a power pole. Also in the reflection in the water, you can see the straight line of the power pole at least in full resolution RAW image. Hopefully you can see it in the squished down version... Beginning of the post sunset color... End of the post sunset color. I hope you can see the faint and broad cloud shadows that look like they came from the tops in south central Iowa well over the horizon...

    Clouds - 2019

    The rains of the morning departed and left an almost clear sly overhead this evening. But it was a close thing. When I got out to the pond. A look to the south of some build-up and the anvil from that cell south of Indianapolis... Post sunset you could see that the lower atmosphere was very blotchy. I do not see smoke on the visual satellite so I wonder if it was the high low level moisture from the morning rains that was real close, if not starting to make some fog... There was just a smattering of red way off in the northwest distance. And more of the low level blotchiness... Once again some short lived violet color... And ending the evening with the Moon making an appearance in the western sky...

    A couple of small breaks in the cloud layer around sunset. What it looked like when I got out to the pond looking southwest... These next two images you can see the difference between my glass. First one was with the 16-35mm at 35mm... Two mintues and nineteen seconds later, after a lens change, here is the 24-70mm at 65mm...

    Clouds - 2019

    When I got off of work at 6 p.m. I thought, darn too bad it is not sunset right now. It would have been ae-inspiring. But two and a half hours later it did a decent enough job of it. What it looked like when I got to the pond. Not much to it... Later as the clouds started to dissipate with the loss of heating... Going to skip straight to the good stuff now. THe beginning of the orange/red... Switched back to the 16-35 for the red max... Here is when the red was just starting to fade. That electric blue ribbon on the left side almost made my teeth hurt it was so tasty...
