Sometimes you see something from nature unfold before your eyes and are thankful to have your camera at hand.
It’s not too often that I really study clouds, most of the time we get the hazy wispy stuff, nothing terribly dramatic, but as we pass l’aéroport Charles de Gaulle outside Paris, my attention is drawn to the fact that there are big storm clouds looming and that there is a majestic display of white, black, blue and gray going on in the sky above us.
All of the following photos were taken in the order in which they appear, in approximately a ten minute minute period, and I even got a tongue in cheek “bird on a wire” photo in the middle of the sequence. To be truthful, being in a moving car and taking photos out the window doesn’t really do these photos proper justice, the colours and variances looked far more intense and dramatic at the time. Oh to have been able to walk, able to stop, to have had a tripod and time to experiment… another day I’m sure I will get my chance. Today I had to make do with the fleeting opportunity presented alongside a motorway and airport.
