Personally I don’t photographs clouds as a specific subject for an image. But……….
We were leaving Geraldine before sunrise when we spotted this unusual cloud formation. It reminded me of a big mothership in a sci fi movie. Having never seen anything like this before I decided to set up the tripod and photograph the cloud as the sun rises.
My dilemma in post production was how to present the cloud- preserve the shape and lose the fine detail or crop.
I couldn’t make up my mind so here are a few variations of the scene.
Also in the gallery I have shown how the lighting changed as the sun came up.
