Sky Watch Friday - Glorious

I couldn't decide which of these I liked the most. I love the horizontal photograph because it showcases so much of the clouds and the interesting lighting and coloring that was taking place.

But I also love the vertical shot because of the contrast between brilliant blue sky and the black silhouette of land.

Same sky, different perspectives. Beauty in both.

I think streaming light through cloud cover is a spectacular sight, and you really captured that. Thanks for sharing.

Both those are absolutely stunning shots! I usually try to make all of my shots horizontal, but for this particular shot I think it calls out for a square -- that's just my opinion -- but it REALLY is a great photo.

Louise said...

I don't think I could have chosen, either. They ARE glorious!

Fantastic shots. I tried to capture the light this way today - didn't quite show up on the shot. So I know how good this is. Stunning.
I love both perspectives.
