Another evening, another walk. Up the hill and right instead of left. Expanding the distance slightly. Hubby slipped and almost fell on the icy pavement. The view over Stoke-on-Trent from the top of Penkhull, first photo, was like watercolour splashed against the sky. Streetlights reflecting off the cloud base.
Each day’s walking is making me tired but happy. And it’s good to see the world turn. Sunsets getting slightly later.
I love skies and I love twisting them so that there appear to be objects on the horizon line or floating in the sky.
The trick is to get a long low horizon and to choose an interesting cloud scape. Or choose one corner of a building and then duplicate and twist it around. Changing the colours in different filters also helps.
I love clouds and skies, and when you multiply them and twist them you can create really interesting images.
Since I know what the objects are the title is pretty obvious. A church spire, or a terraced house roof floating in the sky can look very spooky though. Odd edges to the original photos create little details floating above or to the side of the main object. The best photos to use are mainly sky with the foliage or building in one corner.
The cloud scapes also help give atmosphere (pun intended) to the pictures.
I did consider making these black and white but I think the colours help.
