Summer Storm Breaking Up

I was in a great location to watch the storm that had rolled in Friday night and dropped many, many buckets of rain through Saturday afternoon start to break up.

The drama in the clouds west of Calgary was beautiful to watch build and fall away for a few minutes.

Certainly a different feel in black and white.  In the version above I wanted to bring the weathered barn to greater prominence.  I ended up shedding the color and adding a little grain to create a more historical, antique feel.

    • Thanks for visiting and for your comment. The yellow of the taxi should have looked good but it was distracting in this photograph. I felt black and white was the only way to go with it back at the computer – I’m glad you liked it.
