Skywatch Friday


My photos for today were taken from the car (I was in the passenger seat) on our way home from Coney island, Brooklyn, NY. We were traveling on the Belt Parkway which runs along the south shore of Long Island.




I thought this cloud formation looked like a great dove in the sky.

Nice skies. Wonderful series.

Thanks for the visit.

To answer your question. RAW gives you the ability to change the exposure if you are not off by more than a couple of stops, without losing any detail in the white or black. If your auto white balance does not read the scene correctly as is often the case for fluorescent lighting, you can change this without doing a lot of difficult color correction.

Have a great weekend,
Troy

A lovely sky. The last shot looks rather like a huge bird I think.

What a nice thing to see while riding in the car. Doves and angles!

I love the blue skies with those white puffy clouds. These are definitely the kind of clouds to find images in. Really nice shots!

Linda said...

Very nice pictures and yes, that does look like a dove!

I've been totally fascinated with clouds lately and have been taking so many pictures of the sky that I'm beginning to think I should start doing Skywatch Friday myself. I've basically given up the weekly memes because I just haven't had the time but I really think this is one I'd like to do.

Melli said...

I DO see that dove! Were these taken THIS week? We've had a LOT of the WHITEST fluffy clouds this week in Southern Maryland... so I was just wondering.

Gattina said...

It really looks like a big dove ! I love to imagine what a cloud could represent, it's really amazing sometimes !

chrome3d said...

The last one is a dove indeed and my favourite too.

shubd said...

What a "dovely" picture !!:P

Looks nice and sunny.
You know what I am envious that you managed to take pictures out of a moving car !!

We had this beautiful full moon the other night that was playing hide and seek behind some dark rain clouds . The way it lit up the clouds from the back was so utterly beautiful . Try as hard as I might I haven't a decent shot to show :(

My SWF is Greek ! :)

It does look like a dove. Thank you so much for your kind words yesterday.

Musings said...

I DO see the bird. I'll be doing some expensive (high gas prices) road travel in another month. I hope I get as many nice photos as you did.
