Filtered Clouds, cloud study for skywatch Friday

seen above ourFriday evening sunset

This really wasn't so. I was watching the clouds yesterday hoping for rain when I saw a few clouds darker than some others. The sun was shining in the middle of them. I had purchased a Hoya polarized filter on Wednesday and decided to try it out. I loved the results. It took away a lot of light and really introduced contrast to the results and really darkened the sky. I think it is a lovely cloud study!
An example of what this filter does to colour can be seen in the golden glo photo below. The colour is so full and vibrant. I am anxious to try this filter on a sunset. and a waterfall I have in mind.

We actually have clouds here that look like that today and we did get some rain, but not nearly enough.
Have a wonderful week-end Ann. Love the golden flowers. Reminds me of Fall for sure.

Very interesting the difference the filter made! I could sure use something like that at times.
