Walking back to Malham village down Gordale Lane, there was a really spectacular sky. The sun's rays were piercing through gaps in the cloud to illuminate the land and give that scattered, curtain effect. I've always thought these were 'crepuscular rays' and I think they are often loosely called that, though crepuscular properly relates only to sunrise and sunset when the sun is below the horizon.
The effect was very clear to see but proves to be harder to capture in a photo. I've tried to process these images to emphasise them.
Tricky lighting, but rather wonderful results.ReplyDelete
Loved that last one...the contrasts really come through. It is so difficult to photograph distant scenes which the eyes see clearly, then the camera just goes, eh.ReplyDelete
It really shows in that last one.ReplyDelete
These are dramatic.ReplyDelete
A dramatic sky, you have captured it well.ReplyDelete
I want to out on a coat and hat looking at it.
When I was a kid, I thought those rays were god's (spelled with a big G). Older now, but they still look like they would merit a big G as the source.ReplyDelete
