Silver linings

Making these images made me think (again) about what is a good image and how much technical perfection has to play in making a good image. I was in the driver’s seat while my husband was driving back to Dallas from Austin on Highway 67. From about mid distance we could see these huge clouds forming above Dallas and the neighboring counties, and I was dying to capture them. Stopping on a highway was not really a viable option, and finding a good visibility spot to stop near a town was unsuccessful too. In the end, when we got really closed and we had the sun setting on the opposite side, I took few shots from the car, through the glass. The color versions are not bad, but the only thing I was interested in was the shape of the clouds, and the silhouettes formed against them, so turning them in dramatic black and white images seemed like the perfect way to finish these images.

And back to the opening idea, you could just not capture something when you don’t have the perfect conditions, or just do it and get the best out of it.
