Thank you very much, Bruce. I don't mind at all. As for getting one like it, I just went through your gallery (you have a lot of very good shots thoughout!), and you could try messing around with this shot (a copy of it) to get some of the same effect. What you're trying to do is boost the contrast and adjust all the various tones, highlights, midtones, and shadows. In a photo editing program, move the sliders back and forth to see what each one does to the overall shot and to its specific areas. Then see how multiple changes interact with each other. Usually you can mess around to your heart's content, and then in the undo history, undo all, to get back to the original.

Stunning. Love the way the sunlight catches the edges of the 'coulds', turning them to lace. Cheers, Lisa

Hello, two times, Lisa. Many thanks for your nice comments and visit. It really was a remarkable view out my window. I pass up on opportunities like this much too often, so this one I went ahead and got. All the best to you way over there.

Tony, that was a refrence to a typo that I made in the comments section of this shot which kamaly pointed out. This title was a purposeful misspelling for this one. A sky full of coulds...
