This year the city is getting good dose of Nor’westers and as they cool us at least for a few hours, they draw some frightening yet beautiful paintings on sky too.
We just cannot avoid admiring and at the same time getting afraid of the power of nature. We feel helpless, but cannot keep our eyes off the sky which looks like a canvas stretched far and wide for a wild water color.
Last Saturday I was having a late lunch when the wind started to pick up. On past few occasions I enjoyed the clouds from our rooftop. Those snaps could be seen here and here. This time I thought I would try our balcony. As we live on the second floor and most of the buildings around are 4 storeyed, there were quite a few obstacles, but anyway at least the view changed. Once again it was the camera on my Samsung Monte mobile. The wind was strong and my hands were shaking as I was trying hard to take some steady snaps.
Whatever I managed to achieve is below. The clouds were amazing and I just went on clicking. A mobile camera is nothing as far as photography is concerned, but it surely was enough to document a great sky.
