Dreaming

Backyard

All the TV stations where talking about the coming storm yesterday.  Weather alerts and watches and warnings were scrolling across the bottom of the screen on every local channel.  I wasn’t sure if I should start bolting everything down or go looking for a good vantage point to watch the show.  I chose to stay at home and wait for the impending doom.  A little rain came my way but not before the sky presented a last look at the evening colors.

Sitting at my desk working through my emails I could watch the clouds roll in from the West.  They were not moving particularly fast and right around 8pm I noticed the last spot of color in the sky.  Of course I grabbed the camera!  The lightning was off in another direction so I had a few moments before the rain.

The 60mm macro lens was still attached to the camera but that would work for me as I didn’t want the big, wide view as the color was very isolated.  As I walked into the field across the road I grabbed the first image.  I liked the silhouetted tree against the colorful sky.  There was still another image out here but I wasn’t sure where.

The second image was an attempt to capture the feeling of the gathering wind as it blew the tall field grass around.  I still liked the color in the sky and preferred not to focus to accurately.  Closer.  The last image as I walked back up toward the house captured more of the feeling I had as I stood out in the field with the wind getting stronger, the clouds moving in and the rain barely starting to fall.

In all I was outside for less than 10 minutes…  I liked the color palette the storm chose to use.  Next time I should try capturing some of the lightning.
