How beautiful and dramatic!

Lene said...

Great views and wonderful skies :) Great in sepia :)

Have a nice weekend :)

Diane AZ said...

You found some wonderful clouds! I especially like the darkest ones in your last image.

Julie said...

Oh, I do like that first image from the parking lot. Replacing the colour with sepia means that the texture of the cloud has been emphasised. Rather than light and fluffy, they seem to be to be hard and bumpy - and threatening.

A fascinating interpretation.

Riet said...

Beautiful and dramatic skies. Love them both.

James said...

I'm never disappointed when I come here. I love your style. These are great.
