Waterfall From The Sky

Back in September I participated in the 500px.com Global Photowalk. It was a day to get out and take pictures with other photographers and have a chance to socialize. The leader of the Tampa, Florida photowalk (which actually took place at Honeymoon Island in Dunedin) was Matt Kloskowski. He did a great job of making sure everyone had fun and got to take lots of photos.

Unfortunately the weather decided to be somewhat uncooperative at the start of the walk. We had a fantastic lightning show while we all stood under a building at the beach. The rain kind of went around us and we even got to see a couple of rainbows. Once he deemed it was safe for us to venture out onto the beach, we all went to work.

I have to say, if you want dramatic lighting, just after a storm passes is definitely the time to be out shooting! This scene in particular caught my eye and I had to stand there a few minutes just to visually take it in. The textures of the clouds, the glow of the setting sun behind this massive storm front, and the water pouring out of the sky put my senses into overload.

I used the the wooden pilings to add some interest to the bottom left of the frame and create balance in the image. A vertical shot was the only way to go to fit all of this in the frame.

On second thought, maybe the weather wasn’t so unfortunate after all!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Please consider leaving a comment as I always enjoy hearing from my visitors! 😀
