Weekly Photo Challenge – Through!


Saturday 24th March 2012
 

Through!

Sorry guys but I am doing another slideshow. I found out how to do it and now it seems I cannot help myself.  Seriously though, I feel that the pictures warrant a slideshow rather than just a gallery. 

 

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A very heavy sky, where the sun and other elements are battling to get THROUGH. The heavy clouded sky is winning this battle. This scene was taken one early evening, when sun was setting but these heavy dark clouds spoilt the party. Because of these party poopers I did get some good pictures from it.

As this sky passed over it did drop a fair amount of water as well as an accompaniment of  thunder and lightning.

All photo’s are property of GAC/A ..Geelongs Pictures and Prints.

  4. Very beautiful! I love how the sun is glowing through the clouds and trees. Awesome shot.

    Don’t worry about the slideshow. I feel the same way as you do, once I figure something out, I forget or the procedure is all changed. Ugh. LOL

  13. Gerry, I actually LIKED the side show better than just one photo…it fits the theme as the sun tries to break through…you wouldn’t get that feeling if it were just one photo. Nice interpretation…

  14. The heavy clouded sky may have been winning the battle, but the sun put up a good fight. Together, however, they joined forces to make a stupendous slide show 🙂 Nice job. Gem

  16. Oh ho, I wish I’d thought of a slide show. It would have been cool to see the ocean emerging through the fog.
    What I love about your dramatic sky is the black trees in the foreground. Puts it in perspective.

    Comment by claudiazillerfaria | March 26, 2012 | Reply

    • On your post click media- upload pictures from where-ever you got them. I find it easier if you upload them in reverse order. click -save changes. click insert slideshow. nothing will appear on you edit post. but then if you click preview you will see your pictures. in another window. basic instruction or type slideshow in help..enjoy….;)
