    Clouds in your panorama

    Panoramas always catch my attention and the cloud formations in pano.jpg remind me of a nice spring day around here. Relaxing
    Quite like the shot over the water, personally, though I probably would have aimed a fraction higher. That's just personal preferance. Good shot.

    I don't have many cloud shots, unless you count the ones I got tonight - trying to catch a lightning flash with fingers cross, long exposure and time delay (and fingers crossed!). No remote triggers so just hoped for the best.

    Really hard to judge when a strike will happen - a few times I was out by half a second and missed it. Taken at 1:30 in the morning as a storm came in from over the gulf. The brightness of the houses is just from the long exposure, naturally

    Here's some of mine:






    If nothing else, Forestry Tasmania makes some spectacular pyrocumulus.


    I love watching the clouds "steaming" in the mountains around here.

    Great to see some skies. That was really dark where you shot those databanks, all the noise is showing, but I like the 'drama'.

    Tasmania has great wildlife too, from what I know of. Maybe we can see more of those from you clownfish.

    Pity I have not caught any great sky of late... perhaps a short trip in Dec will suffice. I had some problems posting the Angkor photos here, so I'll try to do it in my photo album.

    Yeah I know. Noisy photo but I'm just pleased I managed to fluke the timing. It was after 1am when they were taken and no remote triggers. Just guesswork and a 2 second timer set on the Fuji. With a remote trigger I could probably get something cleaner but that's on the "one day when I have spare cash" list.

    At the same time the webcam was on motion-detect taking shots

    Tassie's got some beautiful areas so I'd be happy to see more shots

    You really ought to take a look see at those storm chasers' photos. I'm really intrigued by those! Keep them coming yea!

    And yup, I have managed to get the photos up in the photo album. Check them out when you are able, and feel free to comment, even counter-suggestions on the shots/technicalities are appreciated.

    Will have to take a look after work (have to leave in a few minutes or I'll miss the bus)

    You know, even if you don't have time for a trip just for photos, you can still just take a camera where-ever you go like I do. You never know just what you'll come across, after all. A bird that'll let you stand next it while it's eating, or a group of vintage cars in a convoy pulled over for a break - the owners are proud of their machines and happy to pose. Or maybe just a plant that's impossible to resist shooting. An eye-catching cloud formation with the sun just right. You never know.

    I have a couple....

    Taken at a San Diego Padre's game.

    First one is layers. You are looking through a hole in the dark clouds to the white puffy clouds behind.


    And then this one.

    Certainly databanks! I agree with you, just that I do not personally own a decent camera handy enough tt I'd like to carry everywhere, besides my 3.2megapix mobile phone.

    Hammster, love the layers!

    nagar, mine's not really a "handy" size. Not really - it's a Finepix, after all. Relatively big etc. Just started having my camera bag on my hip where-ever I go and it's got to be habit. Would be nice having a half-decent pocket sized camera as well, but that's a "when there are no bills to pay" sort of purchase. And since I just moved house, the bills are rolling in right now (don't even have broadband now - the reconnection/relocation fee is nearly 3 months normal access on top, so it can wait until the phone & power bills with THEIR reconnection/relocation fees are out of the way)
