The story behind the image
I can hear you say: “Clouds? Are you serious, man?” – To which I respond: “Absolutely.”
Of course, I have seen beautiful clouds before. But rarely were these illuminated by the setting sun like on that spring evening. These clouds were of jaw-dropping beauty. They reminded me of old landscape paintings that exaggarated everything, including the clouds in the sky, to show the super-natural beauty of a place.
And now these clouds were right above our home. In reality. I grabbed the EOS M6 Mark II, and mounted the 70-200 tele zoom to the EF adaptor.
I like that there is an orange-blue color gradient from the bottom to the top that acts as a background with the light orange to dark grey clouds drawing the main attention. They look like painted. Simply awesome.
As a side note, this image is almost straight out of the camera. All I did was a bit of cropping, resizing it for web use, and applying the logo. Done. These are the best images.
