    Lenticular Clous Above Mt Shasta

    I apologize for posting so much all of a sudden but I'm currently in a target rich environment and I wanted to share these cool lenticular clouds above Mt. Shasta before I get busy with Thanksgiving.

    The first shot is wide so you can see the other interesting clouds at the time.

    These are beautiful. I'm wondering how they would look in B&W. It looks like there's a lot of nice shading in the clouds to bring out through local contrast adjustments in B&W or even in a different color conversion. Again, very nice captures that give you a lot of room to play in PP.

    beautiful ones here
    The mountains look quite impressive and the clouds are like drawn into the picture to match the mountains. I also like the difference in colour between the foreground and the bright blue sky.
    In think the first one would look better if you took it from a little heigher position but I guess that just a silly remark as there simply wasn't any oppertunity to raise the camera enough.

    Btw what lens did you use for that zooming?

    Chuck,
    Beautiful image. Those should be flying off the gallery walls! Congratulations on that image!

    Thank you. I would wish for a higher and more interesting foreground but this was the best I could do before the clouds moved on. I used a Canon 24-105 lens for all shots. The wide one was at 24 and the close one was at 105.


    Thank you also Pete and eno. I did try a B&W conversion and didn't like it. There is little color apart from the blue in the images and I missed it when I went to black and white. I may try again and also try for more shape/texture/contrast in the clouds.

    Chuck
