Thanks for choosing my photo of the scuba diver in Exploring as Honorable Mention! It’s a great honor!
I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Unusual!
I want to start with some interesting cloud formations that are strange, yet beautiful. The first two were taken in the desert east of Beaver Dam, Arizona. The first was taken around late afternoon.
It looks like a hand print from the sky! This next one was taken later that day around sunset. I was looking at the clouds when I took this photograph, but I didn’t see what was in the clouds until much later when I saw the image blown up.
This really blew me away! What is it? a bird, a spaceship? or just an odd cloud formation? I never can tell.
There are also larger shapes in clouds such as dragons:
This was in the desert near Navajo Mountain on the way home from Monument Valley. And speaking of dragons, have you ever seen a fire breathing dragon? I have:
This was found in a burning stump during a forest fire near the Grand Canyon. I don’t think it’s a relative of Smaug the Terrible.
Now let’s move on to Black and White. The object of black and white photography is to show light and shadow. Have you ever seen shapes in shadows, or clouds? I certainly have. Take a look at these: What do you see?
Do you see the profile? The lighting has to be perfect to get shapes from lights and shadows, probably once in a lifetime. Here’s a fun one as well:
See the moose? It’s not often you see a moose in the deserts of Utah! In fact, they are not native to the area, unless you find them in the rocks.
