Giant fluffy clouds during spring followed by a vivid orange sunset. After that, storm clouds rolled in and you could clearly see rainfall in the distance. It took a while for the rain to finally reach us in the city but it was lovely seeing it roll in!
These photos were taken back when these flowers were the first I spotted during spring. They were so tiny, no bigger than my pointer finger, and I was so happy knowing that spring was on its way. Every year, I can’t help but look forward to warmer weather, longer days, and easier photographic opportunities.
With some sunsets, you blink and you miss the whole thing. With others, they keep going on and on, their colours changing every few moments. Both are beautiful in their own right but with summer approaching, I really can’t wait for those vivid sunsets that make you thankful for being able to exist in that moment. This spring sunset feels almost like a sneak peak!
These are all old photographs that I went back and reworked into infrared inspired images. I think at this point, I’ve exhausted all older photos that would work well with this edit and where I ended up liking the final result. With the greenery of summer, I’m hoping for some new images soon!
This was one of those days where just by looking at the clouds in the evening, I could tell we would have a brilliant sunset later on. Sometimes I’m wrong since Mother Nature has a mind of her own, but I really love being right!
When we got to my spot, we could see the clouds rolling in and in no time at all, the sky opened up and unleashed a downpour onto the city. I was super lucky as I was out taking photos just seconds before! I headed back to the car, closed the door, and was just stunned at how the rain pelted down seconds later while the wind really picked up. Since we were by a hill, we could see the wind moving the rain horizontally. For a second or two, the rain streaks on our windshield were all completely horizontal!
After the rainstorm and a few short videos of the rain later, the sky began to turn pink and then orange. Soon after, some of the clouds gained definition and turned red. It’s not the most intense sunset I’ve seen but I’m not one to turn a sunset opportunity down! I’m really happy I got to go out to capture this beautiful scene.
