Cloud Mimics

By pennyspike
On a recent journey we stopped to stretch our legs at Hastings Seafront. It was very blustery but the grey clouds were clearing to give fabulous skies. I took the opportunity to snatch a few photos.
I was fascinated by the way the clouds appeared to be copying the landscape, even the road markings were replicated by aircraft trails and the central mass had the knobbly appearance of the pebbles.
B/W conversion to concentrate on clouds rather than the colours, I'll post colour as a mod for comparison.
Straightened and cropped from WA shot.
View large for cloud detail if possible.

This is a wonderful image and well seen.

Before i read the description i was thinking that the skyscape almost mirrored the fg.

Fantastic work

Both shots are equally good imo. They are also quite different - almost like two separate scenes. John

Thankyou everybody, your comments are all the more appreciated because I'm out of my comfort zone with landscape type shots.

Am staggered by some of your images, especially the underwater ones. To see the world from that angle or level must be wonderful. Very impressed!

Works well in black and white, and you are right, the graphics are quite similar. I do like the monotone version better. Have a 30 on me.

Can't think of the right words apart from absolutely fantastic. The B+W just adds to the atmosphere. You've got to be proud of this one.

Thanks, Mark and Dianna, it was just a stop to stretch the legs and we were blessed with the clouds.
