While visiting Seattle for an IT conference I had a chance to drive up and see Vancouver for a day. It’s a very nice place and we couldn’t have had much better weather for our visit.
Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that it was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” Together these made up one day. Let their light shine down upon the earth.” And so it was.
For God made two great lights, the sun and the moon, to shine down upon the earth. The greater tne, the sun, presides during the day; the lesser one, the moon, presides through the night. He also made the stars. God set these lights in the heavens to light the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
I don’t know about you but I never get tired of these dramatic cloud shots. Technically they aren’t all that complicated. Take a picture on just about any day where there’s a decent amount of clouds. They don’t have to be very dramatic at all. The original of this shot is nothing like what I ended up with (which some might disagree with also.) Take it into photoshop and goto image/adjustments/auto level. I normally don’t care for auto leveling shots, but here it works to bring about those dramatic colors. Then hit ctrl-j (not sure of the command for you Mac users just duplicate the main layer) change the top layer’s blending mode to overlay and back it off with the opacity of the layer as needed. I took mine into Neat Image to remove some noise and smooth it out some. There you have it…crazy apocolyptic like clouds in the sky.
