Sally D’a Mobile Photography Challenge: Heavy Clouds over Hastings

Heavy Clouds-1-4

Good morning from another sunny spring day here in Hastings.

A month ago I got the new iPhone 6S.   My 5S was starting to show it’s age.  I was getting disappointed with quality of the photos – very pixilated.   Maybe it is because I am becoming a lot more discerning with the quality of photos.  Anyway I just had to go out to try the camera.  Luckily we had some very heavy cloud formations so I just went to town.

Needless to say I went crazy.  And I was happy with the quality of the photos as well.

Sunday Stills: Dramatic Black & White Clouds

Dramatic Clouds-096

Ed from  Sunday Stills has gone for an easier prompt this week.  Black & White clouds. Easy for me to find photos of clouds.  All throughout the day I am always watching the weather and grab the camera whenever I see some interesting clouds.   So here are a few of my vast collection.

Cee’s Black and White Photos: Signs

Sign of Bad Weather to Come-5206

Good morning from a frosty Hastings day.

Cee from Cee’s Photography has asked for our signs.  So how does this first photo fit in this prompt?  Well these heavy clouds are a sign of bad weather.

I have my second Social Snappers group today.  We will be doing uploading and basic editing with Photoscape.  So I haven’t got time to check all the blogs out this morning.  I will get around them later today.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Clouds

Clouds

Cee from Cee’s Photography has asked us for our photos of clouds.  Well, for me, it was a matter of which one to choose.  I love the formation of clouds.  They are never the same.

I have so many photos of sunrises and sunsets but try to resist using them.  But I couldn’t resist this last dramatic image.

A Photo a Week: A Change in Weather

A Change in Weather

This week Nancy has an awesome photo for her challenge to show the change in weather.

http://nadiamerrillphotography.wordpress.com/2014/10/01/a-photo-a-week-challenge-a-change-in-the-weather/

I found this photo in my iPhone 5S and had fun with some editing.  I added the birds with Distressed FX and added some drama with Snapseed. Finally I went to Perfect Affects 8 for some extra definition.  This was taken on the road in between Napier and Hastings.

Here are a couple of other great posts to check out.

Sunday Stills Challenge: Clouds

Clouds 1

 This week Ed has set us the challenge of clouds.  Which is right up my alley.  We do have the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets here in Hastings.

The problem is now the sun is rising a lot earlier and as they say the early bid catches the worm – but in my case I had to wait until the sunset to catch these photos a couple of weeks ago
