Cotton Candy Clouds


Cotton candy. In the sky. Sometimes this happens in between storms. Around dusk. When the air is heavy and still carries a lot of water droplets to reflect the low sunlight. Sunlight that bounces around like crazy and paints the sky with amazing colors. Sometimes, I have a great foreground. Usually, I’m completely out-of-place and I have to go to where I know. At least I wasn’t in a Target parking lot like a friend of mine was. But, it wasn’t much different. It really was just point and shoot. And, hope for the best. The pictures. Funny. Normally, I tune my pictures up. I want to bring out the color. The contrast. And, the shape. Not this time. The natural color was so bright and contrasty that I found myself working backwards. I removed contrast. I took the saturation down because everything looked garish even with just a tiny hint of extra color. Nature took over. As usual. Advertisements
