Solstice Skies (Storefront Photo Call Reminder – 3 days left)

black and white image of field and cloudsIt was a very Summer Solstice day. Bright with just a touch of haze.

I don’t usually shoot for black and white. My love affair with colours is too deep. But the high hanging, high contrast sun, the low silvery clouds and the haze on the horizon just asked to be turned into layers of grey.

And one other thing – if you like skies and are in the London area, check out my mom‘s exhibition at Museum London.
