As I write this, it’s dreary and raining and quite cold. I actually broke down and turned the heat on just to take the chill off. I also stopped on the way home from work and bought some soup and a small loaf of homemade bread. In January, I gave up eating sugar but am finding it much more difficult to give up bread. Sugar I am living without fine, but bread . . . oh so difficult.
Exactly one week ago today, I walked outside to do something (I don’t remember what) and turned around and ran back inside to get the camera. I grabbed it fast, only having time to make sure the memory card was in it. I had my 50 mm lens and didn’t have time to change it out for anything else. I tried to capture the massive line of dark clouds that was moving in at a fast clip.
The height of these trees is massive, so that should give you some idea of the size of the cloud front.
It’s beautiful, really.
This is the kind of stuff that, had my husband seen this, he would have come running to find me – to show me something we wouldn’t see every day, you know?
It got darker.
And then too dark to keep shooting.
I shot all of these with the Nikon 50 mm lens, using Manual mode and forgetting what settings other than having the ISO set anywhere from 1000 to 3200.
