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.

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.
