Fotos on the fly: Spring Blossoms & Storm Clouds….

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams NY Realty - 120 Bloomingdale Road #101, White Plains NY 10605

One of the greatest things about the spring and fall seasons is that the blossoms and foliage create a vivid color display.  On a bright sunny day, they sight is amazing…but sometimes storm clouds create a contrast that makes the seasonal  colors appear more vivid.  This is particularly true when the sun is peeking through heavy cloud cover – just as it was today.  This photo was taken in White Plains near the Gedney Farms neighborhood.  I actually pulled the car over to capture the moment.  I’ll admit that the composition isn’t what it could be, but really, its more a color display than anything else.

Nice shot. The different leaf colors are just amazing and I think the cloudy background added depth to the shot.

This is a gorgeous photo Ruthmarie.  I am not sure why you think the composition isn't what it should be, :), I think the colors really stand out.  Again, beautiful and thank you for sharing that with us :)!

Ok - Glad its working again!  I have to tell the rain Gods...

Hi Barbara - You are just that much further north.  It's amazing out there right now.   Your turn will come soon!

Hi Than - Thanks.  The thing that made it work was that it wan't 100% covr.  Sun  was streaming through from other directions making the blossoms really bright against the dark sky.  We also had a thunderstorm that was just over a few blocks. 

Hi Greg -The contrast was almost surreal when I was driving. Since I had the camera - I pulled over.  Same to you about 2012.

Hi Brenda - I was always told you needed a "subject".  In this case the color was the subject I guess.  The shot worked becuase of the intense contrast. 

Hi Debra - Its supposed to warm up on Saturday. 

Hi Janis - I think we had it so early and then it cooled off. But its not terribly cold today.  Last night - that was cold.

I missed clouds today.

Not a lot of people know, but clouds are good for shooting pictures. Look at your picture: colors are beautiful!

(I was shooting architecture in downtown~ sun is not good for that:)
