Flat Bottomed Clouds

By ChiliMan
I love how I stirred up a whole caterpillar’s nest with those calathea shots Grin

Now wouldn’t it be great to capture a REAL caterpillar looking like that?? That’d be awesome.

Annette, I know the toy you’re talking about! Yeah…so true Smile

By the way, big thanks to Carol (CarolG) and Carole (Rolepics) for identifying the wee flower two uploads ago (image V4) as a viola.

Now then…this upload…just some lusty clouds. That’s what I call ‘em when they’re…I dunno…all puffy and with lots of contrasts and edges and tones and whatnot. These I found quite interesting ‘cos of that straight line running beneath them.


PS This was taken with the cam set to BW.

A very good scene for using the mono. Lovely tones and contrast, Andrew.

but no one will be able to pronounce it no doubt !!
Puffy,lusty clouds will do me.

Yep, you could just about draw a straight line with a ruler below those clouds! Rather lovely mono.

Beautiful and very detailed clouds Andrew and b&w is a good medium to capture them.

Superbly captured and they certainly look like they're floating, an interesting formation, Andrew.

That little strip of land looks quite insignificant against that sky and the sea. Smile

This is interesting - a boat of clouds sailing above rather than on the water WinkWinkWinkWink
