'Every Cloud has a Silver Lining'

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 11 July 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I never really thought about this expression: 'every cloud has a silver lining' until trying to photograph a storm at Morecambe Bay last week...I hope you can make out the silvery white clouds in the distance on this reduced 800 pixel wide version of the photo.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

This is an amazing shot which draws its effect from the simplicity... Imagine a person standing some 30 metres into the picture... But I guess nobody ever walks there ;-)

Magnificient shot, would make for a great poster! 800 px width is definitely too small for this!

Another shot that needs to be seen BIG to appreciate. A truly awesome capture, with just the right amount of PP. Its one I'd print out and frame for sure.

You continue to use light well. The reflection on the middle portion of the photo adds to the appeal of the background light.

Strong composition and one bordering on abstraction where the sky and the ground are in perfect harmony.
