I love the smell of rain as it “oxygenates” the air. It greens up the poor plants that have been suffering in the heat. It revives them. And it revives me. The storms, the thunder, the lightning… the rain.
I wanted to curl up and write on one of my vampire books, but my taskmaster said no. I had to stick to A Highland Wolf Christmas. But there it’s snowing in the Highlands. I wanted to write about dark and stormy weather and… vampires.
I thought this was an interesting view of the storm clouds highlighting the bare branches of winter.
I was reading tips on photography and one of the things that was said was to take unusual views of an object, like instead of taking a picture looking down at a flower, take one from the side. Or from beneath it. I thought that was neat. For flowers, add some water droplets for interest. Maybe don’t take a picture of the whole object, but a special part of it. I noticed on model photos that I want to use for my book covers, a lot of them have parts of the people cut off. It’s kind of odd. But maybe it’s more dramatic that way in some instances. Not all. I have some lovely pictures of the whole model for some of my covers.
And then if I want to cut off heads, or other body parts, I can. 🙂
I cut off a lot of bird parts here. *sigh* But I did catch 7 whole flamingos and the reflection of 4 of them in the water. 🙂
Okay, so the birds would NOT cooperate. It’s not the photographers fault!
Hey, it is a cool shot of flamingo reflections right? So sometimes head shots just aren’t important!
Off to write! Have a wonderful TGIF!!!
