Had I known the last glimpse of blue sky would be associated with last Saturday's ominous cumulous clouds, I would have captured more images. We can hope for a break in the clouds, snow and rain soon, but it's not in the forecast. And now, some are forecasting El Nino effects for the summer. Adjust and adapt! 05/16/15 1:33PM MDT. Canon 5Dmk3, Canon EF24-105 f/4L IS USM, f/11, [1/1000s, 1/640s, 1/400s], ISO 100. lens focal length 35mm.

Yes! I was wondering if someone in the right place would put up a shot in the old view camera style a la Ansel Adams et al. And so it is. Nice. and a late hour bump

The title saved you on this. I think we've become so used to filmic processing on modern work that we forget its origins and I almost did.

it's a gorgeous shot but it seems like more could have been done to give a look that emulated film

Almost looks like an eruption. Great contrast profile.

An obvious date violation if taken in 1961! :-) Ominous looking cloud.
