Sky streakes

Weather changes are often announced by interesting cloud patterns in the sky. Yesterday a transition set in to colder weather with easterlies. Early in the morning the sky above my local patch was dotted with altocumulus streaks. I choose a more or less symmetrical composition with the horizon in the middle to emphasize the open space and to create a clear vanishing point. In order to create a more balanced exposure I manoeuvred the rising sun behind a little tree and used a neutral density hard gradient filter of 2 stops.

* Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 17-40mm/f4 @ 17 mm; ISO-200, f16, 1/80s; -0.3 stop; 2 stop ND hard gradient filter; tripod.

Wat kleurt die lucht mooi bij dat oranje! Misschien toch een idee dat ik er ook eens ga kijken, het is zo dichtbij.

Krijg je geen spijt van Jowan; ik heb er al heel wat uurtjes doorgebracht en het blijft me verrassen.
