Β  That just happened! The crazy weather and the storms are not stopping any time soon. That cloud was moving insanely fast, it was a matter of seconds before the whole sky turned dark and crazy amounts of rain started pouring down. The storm lasted about an hour, leaving us without electricity. I spend that time with my guitar, playing spooky music, trying to create the soundtrack of a horror movie. Storms inspire me, i can see that. One thing i am grateful for is that it only rained and we didn’t have any hail, my mom’s awesome garden would be destroyed 😦

Hello my friends πŸ˜€

Β  The weather here has been very stormy lately but that was a great opportunity for me to take some new photos. I always found thunderstorms very fascinating and it would be an understatement to say that i’m not in love with them. My grandmother is terrified by them and here i am running outside with my tripod as soon as i hear a thunder πŸ™‚

Β  So last night it was a distant thunderstorm, i didn’t hear any thunders, i didn’t see any lightnings. I had reports from several of my friends who live in Thessaloniki that there was a storm there and i thought to check it out. From my balcony i could see some action in the distance. I began taking some wide angle photos but the lightnings were not strong enough to make the scene interesting so i decided to pull out a zoom lens and try to get closer to the center of the storm.

Β  After a while iΒ  realized the storm wasn’t moving very fast so i could predict where to focus and how to compose my shots. The heavy clouds most of the times covered the shapes of the lightnings passing through them but that created a very interesting light play.

Β  Most of my exposures are about 7-9 seconds long. In the first images that i did a longer exposure you can see the movement in the clouds which was not an effect i liked. As for post-processing i did add some saturation and contrast to make them more colorful and dramatic but the difference in color tones was there and that’s how this storm felt to me. I hope you enjoy πŸ˜‰

Β  Doesn’t matter if you are a summer or a winter person, when autumn comes the feeling is the same. Those first dark skies and cold rain leave you with a melancholic mood. It’s up to you if you actually enjoy it or not.Β  I know this kind of weather is my favorite for photos and i find great inspiration in it.
