DRAMATIC SKY

By Imagephotographics
Thanks to everyone for your votes & comments on Ruth's Portrait yesterday - most appreciated !

Thought I'd better put up something different today, in fear of boaring you all to death with my portrait images. Although this is my favourite type of photography, I just love capturing that certain ' look ' in a face.

Today's image was taken last Saturday afternoon, it actually stopped raining, and we decided to make the most of the afternoons' sunshine and go for a run around the Gower Coast. We first stopped off at Penclawdd and took this image, the clouds were the most amazing I think I've ever seen, just a shame the tide was'nt in at the time.

Hope you like this image, just had to turn it into a strong black/white to take full advantage of the sky's dramatic appearance - hope you like it.

Chris
