Clouds at my doorstep

By ChiliMan
Lynne(Joyce) did a Mod for me yesterday combining the sky of V2 with the water of V1...and I just LOVE the result. I hadn't thought of such a combination. Isn't that one of the great things about this site?? The eye openers! Now I really like the strong effect my polarising filter has on skies BUT it also turns water dark (which makes sense 'cos it minimises reflection, ya?). With Lynne's combo, I get the best of both scenes. Thanks, Lynne Wink

I'm putting up Lynne's Mod as a V4 in yesterday's upload. That way, if you scroll from V2-V4 you can see the difference.

Also, I’ve adopted Simon(Fletch)’s title suggestion of ‘Mars’ for yesterday’s upload Grin


For today's upload, some clouds taken from my front gate on Sunday morning. I couldn’t decide on the order so I went chronologically Smile

Well these weren't taken on Mars, Andrew...!
Definitely some 'big sky' images here, each having the Wow factor.
But I'm turning 'martian' - I'm green with envy...!
Lynne did a good job of combining yesterday's two images, very pleasing.
