Fotos on the Fly - Rolling Storm Clouds on the Hudson River

RuthMarie provides us a great example and shows that we don't have to wait for sunny sky and the perfect weather conditions to create a compelling photo because her photo is a real attention getter.  Nice Job!

Sailboat on the Hudson before a storm

If you live on the east coast and  you take photos - you learn to work with high cloud cover and make it work for you.   Westchester NY is no different particularly if you are photographing something on the Hudson River or the Long Island Sound. This time I used HDR-lite  and allowed myself a bit of poetic license with the color.  The clouds were a deep color, but perhaps a tad less vivid in real life. This was the case last weekend when I was taking photos on the Hudson River.  I admit I was tempting fate by playing a game of "chicken" with an on coming storm.  Oh - and I made it back under cover before the storm hit.  Don't know about the people in the boat though.... However the water was quite calm unlike the heavier storms a week earlier.

I agree with you.  This is a beautiful photograph, it really captures the mood.

Hi Sam, Thanks for reblogging.  On the east coast if you waited for totally sunny weather - you might have a long wait.  This didn't used to be the case, but our weather systems now move very slowly.
