This image was taken as I was driving to a job site 35 miles from my home in Niagara County, last week. I pulled the Jeep over and took this image. I was inside the vehicle because traffic was so heavy and this is a very dangerous road to try to exit the vehicle.
Does it not look like the sky is falling? The image below was taken also last week, coming home from a job in Niagara County. Is this not heavenly? The Niagara escarpment is just behind me. The river winds below, but, off in the distance. The camera is facing Canada.
The image below was taken last night from my backdoor. The sky was so unusual in color and cloud formation. While working in my office, I looked out and picked up the camera to capture the early evening sky. It looked like the sky was on fire.
This image was taken a week ago along the Niagara River, just less than a mile away from my home. I was on my way to a Master Gardener meeting.
Looking up through the Norway maples on my street last night, I took this image because the pink clouds were moving really fast through the sky and they lit up the red leaves on the maple. This is where my camera skills lack. I so wanted those red leaves. They looked like little rubies on the tree tips. It was after a rain, so they were still glistening wet.
This image is from the same drive as the first image. The clouds were low in the sky and very heavy-looking. The cloud was perfectly flat on the bottom, not so evident in my image.
I really wish I was a better photographer because these skies were really spectacular and my photos do not do them justice. These are straight from the camera, with no adjustment to color or saturation. I did lighten the last image though, because when I uploaded it, it was too dark to be viewed on the web. We do not get skies like this very often, and I am so surprised that all these were taken in the span of a week. Hope you enjoyed.
