Ground Clouds

“Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth.” ~ Diane Ackerman

Je ne sai qua

(Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 17-55mm @ 17mm. Exposure: 1/500th sec. @ f/11. ISO: 400) Sometimes the introduction of a single element can add wonders to a photo. While on Harney Lane in Lodi, I saw these dramatic clouds filling the sky. A storm had just passed and another loomed ahead. A steady breeze pushed […]

Sun, glorious sun

The sun tries to break through the clouds and fog at American Legion Park in Stockton (Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 17-55mm @ 17mm. Exposure: 1/500th sec. @ f/5.6. ISO: 200).

It was a dark and cloudy night

(Camera: Nikon D300. Lens: Nikkor 17-55mm @ 55mm. 5 sec @ f/2.8. ISO: 100). I saw a band of clouds hovering over Lodi one recent evening that caught my eye. Lit mostly from behind by a full moon, the clouds seem to almost glow. They also picked up a faint tint from the street lights […]

ISO: 200) Although this isn’t the best time of the year for pictures, the drive to up Highway 26 to West Point was a pleasant one. The peak […]

The need for speed

I need a faster car. I have a 1995 Honda Accord. It’s reliable, durable and economical. Fast? Well, not so much. I was traveling home after work up I-5. It rained that day, but had mostly ended. Heavy storm clouds swirled around the sky, parting here, closing up there. The clouds opened up slightly in […]

Cloud junkie

A cyclist rides against a backdrop of cloudy skies along the Calaveras River bike path in Stockton. (Camera: Nikon D2X. Lens: Nikkor 17-35mm@ 17mm. Exposure: f/11 @ 1/500, ISO 200) I’ve said that I’m a silhouetted junkie (so much so, that I, a hunt-and-peck devotee, can type “silhouette” with my eyes closed). I also have […]

The gods must be in training

I was looking for a cloud picture when I saw Delta College track team member Andrew Setness working on his technique on throwing the javelin during a practice at Delta’s DiRicco Field in Stockton. I got down low (the camera was sitting on the ground) to get as much of the clouds as I could […]
