Weather

I’m making a slight attempt to catch up with my Flickr and 2B (Beyond Beyond) challenges today.  The 2B challenge I’m working on is creating textures.  Kim Klassen makes it look so easy, but my first two attempts have been epic FAILS.  The test of a good texture is that it should enhance a photo, right?  The two I created were fun to do and looked okay until I added them to photos.  Back to the drawing board, er… wacom tablet!

One of my Flickr group’s topics this week is weather.  Since I’m a bit obsessed with the weather in my new home in Northern Arizona, I kept that topic in the back of my head. Last night  I had just joined my husband on the couch to watch football when he said, “Now there’s some clouds for you to photograph.” (he is always pointing out things for me to photograph). I looked out our east-facing window to see lovely puffy, pink clouds, a reflection of the sunset in the west, behind our house.  I saw all this explained on the Weather Channel, but don’t remember how and why it happens that way.  I grabbed my camera and went out front to take a few shots. Then I turned around to go back in. Oh. My. God.
