This week’s theme is Designs of Nature. Nature creates unique, sometimes simple, designs if you look around. Here is an image of the branches of a leafless tree spread out in a random formation against a blue, cloudy sky.
Silhouette photography is all about getting your lighting right. A silhouette effect is created when a light source is placed behind your subject, with little to no light in front of your subject. Here the bird and tree are silhouetted against a serene sky.

Cloudscape photography is photography of clouds or sky. The sky is the single most abstract and dynamic canvas that a photographer has at his disposal. It is an endless source of inspiration that can change a boring photo into one of tremendous interest. Clouds can really either dominate an image or they can enhance the background.
Will be posting this week images of clouds as the dominant feature. Here is one with striking cloud formations in the blue sky.
