From My Deck

By JimV
A panorama from my deck as the sun was going down on 23rd. October. To be honest I don't remember what we got from that threatening sky - if anything!

Many thanks to all those who commented on Powell's Point Park 3, very much appreciated.

Superb panorama, Jim, and from your doorstep so to speak: the contrasting banding of heavy sky, sunlit neighbours/trees and f/g shadow make for a most dramatic image, and as you mentioned to me recently, you happened to be there at precisely the right moment.

Storm light - what a perfection description for this. The light here is exceptional Jim and that sky certainly accentuates it. You have a lovely view from your balcony.

I see this kind of light often in Bergen, where the skies are often threatening.

Yay! I've missed these. I remember you used to take pics of this view at different seasons Smile Don't remember this sorta sky before, though! That is one threatening sky, Jim. We had one today and it did translate into quite a rain...but not for long.

This shot really is something. To have that sky AND that light. I like Joline's term --- "storm light" Smile

You have a most enviable view from your balcony-- I love it when the light just before (or after) a storm happens--
also love the brilliant colors your leaves turn-- this does not happen in our area of Pennsylvania!
Love this pano!

A fine view of your neighbourhood Jim, I like the range of colours provided by the foliage and the moody sky
