It has been rainy out here lately. I was surprised to see this rainbow superimposed against the gray.
California’s atmosphere has changed a bit since the fires.
The same bank of clouds as yesterday, but darker in tone and softer.
These clouds are scattered deeply and widely. The feathery ones at the left seem to be very high up, while the puffy ones appear to be closer to the ground.
Keeping an eye out for oddly-shaped clouds during this time of quickly changing weather prepared me for catching the scene below. Even though the photo is not perfect (it was taken through a car window), it is still a dramatic picture.
The wiry lines of the branches contrast with the mottled areas of the gray clouds.
This photo does not exactly embody to the ‘decisive moment‘ concept as initiated by Henri Cartier Bresson. In fact I didn’t see the birdie until after I snapped the picture. I like the drama in the rest of the photo.
