After two years of doing this, I think that this is what keeps me intrigued in photography, the weekly search for a photograph. While Nikhil has embarked upon his Daily Photography project this year (I hope he goes the full 366) I know my limitations, I won’t be trying that anytime soon.
I think that this image is somewhat appropriate to the year, the crazy Armageddon stories and to my photography. If you believe the Mayan Calendar theorists and many of the other Doomsday predictions regarding the year 2012, then you’re probably hoping, like myself, that I get some really good photographs this year! 🙂
This was taken on New Year’s Day, because of my interests in HDR, I thought that I would try another Black and White HDR, this one was taken at midday, I think the originals were 2ev apart.
It was a breezy day (forgot my tripod again, so this was hand-held for all three exposures), and very overcast, lots of clouds as you can see.

The tone of this image is just perfect.
Thanks Nigel, I’ve been watching your black and whites in December and the one yesterday, you’re doing a great job!!!
Thanks for sending these photos. They are really lovely for me to look at and ponder on the high quality and the very high interest and fascination they have. For someone who doesn’t know the story behind the photo, they may think that a storm may be forming. I love it
Thank you Cecil, for all the good comments and encouragement!!
Welcome back 52 Deck! A great shot to start the series Mike. Hope you will not get sidetracked with the posting this year. Looking forward to my weekly fix 🙂
Thanks Nik, I will try not to get too sidetracked this year
Is it a storm brewing for mr. badal?
Andrew, I think we’d have to ask him, or maybe we’ll hear if he got struck by lightning 🙂
Happy New Year Michael… Looks like its going to be a great year for photography… You always have the best skys 🙂
Thanks Simon, Same to you 🙂 very flattered at your comment
Very nice – love the clouds, and the way you’ve placed the subject in the image. I look forward to another year of Deck 52!
Thanks JP, I am flattered, I don’t think many can compare to your lovely photographs, there’s not a single one that doesn’t tell a story (or a few stories 🙂 )
Belated new year wishes to you Michael and good luck on your photo project. You have a nicely composed shot here – I like the tones and monochrome conversion.
Thanks Sasi! Always good to hear from you 🙂
