[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken at 1pm just after a stop for lunch and must have been the first shot of the afternoon. It has intrigued me as it is quite a dark shot but the ones I took after were not. I took this mainly because of the cloud formation it seemed to be layers upon layers. I have cropped added a border re-sized and sharpened I hope that you like it.

Beautiful monochromatic image Jon.

Love the subtle tones in the image.

Composition really works well, reckon the darkness is due to your camera meter metering for the sky.

But it really works, I like the underexposure of the trees.



see what you mean about the clouds Jon they do look kinda in order with the layers could have been a little sharper but not a bad effort
regards bryan

Hi Jon,nice subtle tones, I really like the mood of this image
Interesting cloud formation, their lines balance well with those of the mountains.Liked that touch of snow on their peaks.



We tend to think that clouds are dark but in actual fact they can be very bright especially when we are shooting into the light as you have done. The situation is accentuated because clearly the landscape we see is in shadow. The result is often monochromatic ie an absence of colour. Good composition with the rule of 1/3s coming into play. The blue sail really stands out in this shot because colour is so rare.Good job
warm regards

Hello Jon,
you captured the typical light of a cloudy sky, but the light diffused by water has a strange effect, lightening the shot from down.
Ciao, Elena

I like the panorama and the clouds. My eyes are drawn right into the picture. I too like the dark trees.
