Days like today...

A couple shots, each one in color followed by a B&W version.

I shot these on the way home today...I am thankful there was no other cars till I could snap these...

For some reason I really love cloud shots in B&W...not more than color but probably as much.

Days with skies like this

they make our heart sing.  We both keep telling each other to look at the sky!

Good afternoon, Rose! Praise God for a beautiful day with blue sky and white clouds. Both coloured and b&w photos are great!

Well, I was so sure that I would like the color better. BUT, the black and white are so artistic and beautiful! Plus, in the second picture, the beautiful swirl in the top left is much more pronounced in black and white.

...I'd take more of these!

Sandra said...

this is the sky I love the most.. I find it distracting when driving into it like this, can't keep my eyes off of it. this is the kind of sky to lay on our back and stare up at it. now we know why there are songs about blue skies

Hello, these are lovely sky captures. I prefer the color images. Pretty blue sky and love the puffy white clouds. Enjoy your day!

Debby Ray said...

Both the color and the black & white shots are stunning images, Rose. I could look at the sky all day!

I'm just a color lover, but I do like your black and whites and clouds also seem accentuated in black and white. Carol

Yes, beautiful shots! Interesting in B&W, but since blue is my favorite color, there is nothing that beats those color shots! Lovely!

The black-and-white versions make the cloud stand out. Of course I'm partial to black and white. The color versions are very attractive.

So beautiful. I love each photo. So thankful you two were able to be out and about and enjoy God's beauty.

Sandi said...

We lose so much without color.

Christine said...

So glad you stopped & photographed those amazing clouds!

Beautiful skies and I like the color ones best.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Gorgeous! I do like the black and white as well. I have never considered doing that with a cloud shot, but that may change now.

I've always liked pictures of the road. These cloud pictures are great, Rose, and the black and white one you can really notice the clouds. I see a pig in the second cloud picture with a big snout. Yes, I see images in the clouds haha.

Those scenes are breathtaking Rose, gorgeous skies and I like the b & w shot also.

Excellent capture on the sky and the views are quite inspiring! Love the formation of clouds and I had to go through similar experience during my travel lately

Oh la! Beautiful skies Rose. It's hard to believe some people never even notice the cloud formations in the sky, I find them dangerously distracting 😀 love the b&w but the white against that fabulous blue is spectacular!

Klara S said...

All of them are beautiful, but I think I like b&w a little bit more :-)
