Spring time in Texas means four things: Wind, Bluebonnets, Thunderstorms, and Tornados. Luckily the last one is still the rarest. Now for the photographer it also usually means clouds.
Last spring, I went out with a pack full of gear to a local park to see what kind of flowers I might find. It was past bluebonnet season but I still had hopes for some. What I was really treated to was some great clouds moving across the sky at sunrise.
So I shifted gears from flowers to clouds and set up this image. of the hills in the park with the great morning light. In the early soft light I photographed the softer colors of the sky, the moon, and a trail running through the park. After a couple of images and the light warmed up, I switched over to a black and white shot to capture the scene in monochrome.
The different look each one has is great although I like them both at the the same time. One of the things I do notice on looking at the results is the wonderful colors and glow that Velvia has. There is always colors in the early mooring and classic Velvia 50 always impresses me.
I miss that film.
