Mountainous Cloud

Clouds are ephemeral subjects, you shoot what you see when something special appears. These stratocumulous formations were drifting over Adelaide from the Gulf St Vincent in May, 2009, and I framed this towering formation from Carpark 1 at Flinders University, south of Adelaide. Even though the university has a hilltop location there are still intrusive elements taller than the photographer's vantage, carpark lighting for instance. This photograph would have been perfect if not for the lighting poles, but even so it makes a very aesthetically pleasing show of light, shade and colour. Colour and contrast were enhanced slightly.
