All weather, all lights

In this picture most of the weather and lights can be found: sun, darkness, rain, clouds, blue sky, natural light, artificial light. All in a single picture: it is not so usual find all them together. Isn’t it beautiful?

North American T-6 Texan warbird

I took this picture during an airshow. It’s a classical warbird (WW II era) carefully restored. It’s a classical picture, which I like because the wing has the same inclination as the far background clouds (the plane was turning around a pylon).

Roof tiles and snow

Cold, ugly, with snow and rain. These are the adjective which came up to my mind describing this day. Looking the gray sky I saw anyway these roof tiles, with their quiet order which doesn’t care of the weather. I like their strong appearance, and their classical color. The result is this graphical and somehow abstract (again!) image.

Heavenly light

I was looking from home window during a heavy rain period, and among a shower and another, some sun rays peeped out through the clouds. They were looking to me like a sign of presence of a superior authority. I quickly took my camera and shoot this image.
