Dramatic Skies

Dramatic Skies

This was during the same crossing as the previous post. The storm had passed and the wind had dies down again, but the skies were still dark and threatening. The clouds parted behind us and the sun came out illuminating this HUMBLE abode.
I think this is one of my favourite images of the trip taken with the newly released 12-50 mounted on the OM-D. Actualy, although I don't think much of this lens (there are better out there) I was thankful that I had the lens with me on this occasion. It is after all splash proof and it did come in handy mounted on the OM-D.

Dramatic Skies

Dramatic Skies

Dramatic sky as we crossed Lake Garda. The reason I mentioned in an earlier post that Lake Garda was just like a small ocean to me is because it acts like a small ocean. We took a ferry around the lake, one that stops at different town along the coast. A great way to get around because the traffic is a nightmare. It's the fastest way to get to one town to the next. Now, it just happened that while we were on the ferry a storm blew up and believe me, I thought the ferry wasn't going to make it. Because of their flat bottoms the ferries don't normally run in bad weather but when your in the middle of a crossing, there's not much else you can do.
The image shows the sky as the storm passed. It was amazing how quickly it came, and it passed just as quickly. The spook was over in about 30 minutes, but it wasn't a pleasant 30 minutes.
 
At this spoint I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas
and a happy New Year to you and yours.
All the best for the coming year.

Lone Tree

Lone Tree

Spotted this lone tree growing along one of the many paths traversed to get to mountain top. Photographing this gave me a good excuse to stop and have a breather. I just like the gree against the very blue sky. What I have noticed is that a blue sky is not just a blue sky. In southern countries the blue seems to be a deeper shade of blue. I prefer it to the blue of the northern European countries. I try and take in everytime, but it impresses me again the next time I see it.

Clouds

Clouds

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy photographing clouds? Well, I do, just in case I didn't mention it. We were out on a little 4 hour walk when I looked behind me. This is what I saw. That cloud coming over the hill looks like it had some precipitation in it. It did. One good thing though, we got back before the heavens opened up. I'll be posting an image soon showing what actually came down. Not nice for those that were still out.
Some nice contrast here between the sky and the very yellow gorse that seems to everywhere in the Spanish mountains. I also like the olive tree on the center left. Those branches makes the tree come to life.
