We had some really thick mist few days ago which allowed me to do some experimenting with a head light.

Cool clouds in the sky. Maybe the really cold weather has something to do with this.

Cloudscapes

Cloudscapes

I just released my latest photo series. “Cloudscapes” is my two-year project of clouds presented in monochrome format.
One of the main goals was to get a mountain-like look and feeling for the clouds. Most of the images are vertical panoramas (vertoramas) from two or more images.
You can view all of the images here: https://www.joniniemela.com/#cloudscapes

Cloud Mountain

Cloud Mountain

I’ve have had this vision of mountain looking clouds with starry sky background for a while now.
Since it’s pretty uncommon to see this kind of combination here in Finland I decided to create the image from two different exposures using Photoshop.

Editing consists mostly of brushing the clouds over the starry sky using layer masks.
The blue toning was done beforehand in Lightroom.

Shot of clouds is from last week and the one with milky way / stars is from last fall.

There was some geomagnetic activity last night which didn’t spark any mind blowing northern lights. Still I thought this one looked ok in monochrome format.
