Clouds through Eyes
I remember the day I took this picture clearly. It was one of those days that even though it was cloudy and hazy it was very bright so I wore my sunglasses. Also this was early in the days when I just started taking my camera everywhere with me. I was walking around looking at the trees and the area when it got bright all the sudden. Looking up I saw the beautiful sunlight above the little bit of clouds.
I took out my camera and looked at the screen and it didn't look right at all, it was all blown out with the haze. I knew it was my glasses that let me see it the way I wanted to so I took them off and took a couple of photos. If I hadn't tried the simply trick then I would have missed this picture because I didn't have a polarized filter yet and also the sun was gone within a minute.
I love the blown out sides that are so bright that you know what it looked like at the time. The sun rays in the center of the picture pulls you into it. The white clouds formations against the blue sky has a great contrast. I made no attempt to hide the fact that I used my sunglasses you get the picture in the least but that is the picture to me. If I cropped out the glasses then it would be pretty but with no story at all.
Thank you very much for reading.
