Fire the Canon!

Not bad for a first pass with the new Canon.  It was a glorious day of clouds to be experimenting with!

    Beautiful photos!! Wow! The sky in the second pic is the same sky I saw in our neighborhood about two days ago; didn’t have my camera/phone with me — What do you call that “sunburst” formation of the clouds? It is just beautiful! Have fun with your new baby, Lilly!

    • The thin wisps are high cirrus clouds, but obviously propelled by a lot of wind to get those striations. Then with the mid-level cumulus–well, awesome! I was running upstairs, downstairs, backyard, frontyard all day! Didn’t drive till later because of the fuzziness in my head. The train I got as I was going to try and catch the sunset.

        Awesome stuff. The train pic reminds me of an elementary class I took in art, as a young kid. We were learning about “perspective” and had to draw something, going from large to small. I drew a train. Your pic is better! You would have gotten an A+!

    Awesome shots ! Is this your first Canon?

  4. Amazing! What kind of camera is it? As you can see from my photos, I don’t know what I am doing. I aim, I fire, before I was ever ready. 😀

  5. I was out taking pictures of the clouds yesterday. They were beautiful, and it’s rare that we get beautiful clouds. Usually just the marine layer clouds — dull, gray, and overcast.

    My intent is to use them as skies in other pictures that need a beautiful sky instead of the dull, gray, overcast mess.

    Truly beautiful photos… you look like an expert to me.

    Looks like you have “flying saucers” down there–big white fluffy ones. 🙂

    Wooow! The second cloud picture from the top is… phew! 😀

  9. You have just made it so much harder for me to wait patiently to be able to make my purchase!

    Perhaps I am just sad! But I like the trains I have an obsession about taking an epic train journey – but the clouds are lovely too!

    Fire the Canon indeed, these photos look more like the cannon was fired. Awesome photos!

I would love to hear from you!
