When you just have to stop!



Yesterday on the way home from work, this was the sight infront of me as I headed towards Wallaces Monument. Luckily I had the camera and tripod in the car with me, I couldn't not stop when the sky looked like this.

Re: When you just have to stop!

I agree wholheartedly that it's a really nice shot of a beautiful sky - well captured!

It's horrible when you see something like this and you're on a motorway though isn't it !

One small suggestion... I went through to the gallery to enjoy it at fullsize and at that size the wires are a little distracting - if you have a mo I suggest a minor adjustment

Regards
Andy

Re: When you just have to stop!

I know exactly what you mean, there's been countless times when the sky has had the wow factor and I've been on the motorway.
Scrambling through my mind as to where i could try and stop to get the shot. But to get 'the shot' i'd have to be playing chicken with the cars on the motorway!
I understand what you'r saying about the wires, when taking the shots I hadn't realised they were visible as I was focusing so much on the monument. I'll have a wee bit tweeking in ps.

Thanks for your comment
S

ps. I've updated the photo now

Oooh Susan, that's beautiful. I'd have stopped too if I'd had a camera in the car
