Cloudy Skies

Cloudy Skies

As I was walking back to work after buying lunch the other day I spotted some interesting clouds over the mountains behind our office building. When I got back to my desk I dropped my lunch, grabbed my compact camera, went out on the balcony and grabbed a few photos.

I picked one to process this morning and wasn’t that happy with the resulting colour image so I decided to process it as black and white, coming up with the image above.

Conjunction of Moon, Venus & Jupiter with clouds

The phenomenon of apparent close proximity of heavenly bodies is called a conjunction. Tonight there was a rare treat, as Jupiter and Venus both appeared in close proximity to the moon.

The sunset last night was rather dramatic. Shot from my back yard.
