Irish clouds

by Jean-Michel Laurenti January. 14, 2020 160 views

One of the most recurring sentences I keep hearing from people who manifest a basic interest for photography relate to weather: "Not a good time for photo, there is no sun" or "It's a sunny day, let's take some photos".

Sure, when sky is flat, with a light gray and no directional light, any landscape might look flat and boring.

But a deep cloudy sky, even with no visible ray of light, can bring character to a scene, adding volume and depth to the landscape and creating a special atmosphere...

Ireland is one of these countries where you feel the elements as much as you see them...

Stay outside, and photography becomes a physical experience...

Gorgeous captures! You are right, the sky and light really bring out the depth and color in the landscape.

Thanks Bethany! It's funny, as just after coming back, when building a first selection of the pictures captured during that trip, I did not selected these ones... But now, it seems that these images are closer to my own memories when I'm thinking of Ireland, and these lands of grass with almost no trace of human...

Thanks Sherry, looks like you also look to render a special mood in your photos of flowers, feather or macro details. So I'm glad you let a comment, thanks.

Thanks Eiram, I'm glad you liked it. It seems you have a whole bunch of images in your blog with a special atmosphere (fog or snow), so you know what it means to be outside  :-)
