About the Image(s)

This image was taken in the eastern part of Washington state. The fields were amazing, and I was lucky enough to be out when a storm was approaching on the horizon. It was a gravel road and even after driving several miles, I never saw another car.

Photograph data: Canon 5D4 with 24-105mm lens at 50mm; 1/1250 sec; f/14; ISO 800.

Love the ominous look in your monochrome image Oliver - much more graphic than what is seen in the color shot. Is it possible that the original and the monochrome are two different images? Never the less, if its an approaching storm you were headed in the wrong direction - possibly why you never saw another car. Very dramatic at any rate. I give it my seal of approval making you an official meteorological photographer.   Posted: 10/06/2019 21:42:46

How fortunate you were to be in this place as that storm approached, but skilled to take advantage of it. This is one of the best ominous storm cloud shots I have even seen.
Also, I love the "long empty road" theme, and you did a great job of it, angling off center, with both ends of the road at the frame corners. Well done.   Posted: 10/12/2019 12:10:22

Hi Oliver,
There's nothing to criticize for.
Great place and the photo is just a masterpiece.   Posted: 10/13/2019 10:12:48

Hi Oliver. I am visiting from Group-87 and 83.

I must admit - I am a bit confused. The original looks like it was shot at 50mm, but the posted final looks like it was captured at a different location and position along the road and maybe with a wider lens, yes?

Kind regards,

I think you might posted the wrong original, it's different. Was thinking how amazon if you can actually expand from that original to this final. ;-)

I think the B/W is very nicely done, very dramatic. No comments from me. Thanks for sharing the stunning storm   Posted: 10/14/2019 11:29:36
