Deep Purple. Clouds quilting the sky.

There is an excitement in the air. I can nearly touch it.

Energy crackling, pulsing deep within my heart.

Like Helen Keller said,

“The best and most beautiful things

in the world

cannot be seen or even touched –

they must be felt with the heart.”







Song writer J. Bullock,

“when the storm clouds

in the west are quickly gathering


the ponies they run wild there

before it rains


you’ll see their sleek dark bodies,

darkly gleaming


you know the fire

is flying through their brains…”





Travel Location


This Storm photo was taken up north in Kalbarri, Western Australia.

It was shot… just as the sun was setting.



Our travel adventure was coming to a close.

But we were being treated to sky magic.

Art…… painting in the air.






Photo Editing Processes


I had the iphone, so  took the shot on that.

It was later, loaded onto my Ipad Pro for  photo editing. As I have a lot more editing apps on the Ipad.


Plus, my Ipad Pro has the added advantage of …. I can,  actually see the keys.

This is very important.  Any One, laughing yet?



My Ipad Pro is big enough for my hands too.

This, is another Big bonus.


So I don’t (often)  misdial, mis tap the keys. Like my unwieldy RA fingers do all the time on that iphone. If you’re younger… you may just smirk abit at this!





*Sidenote…….. I have to say, I have been extremely satisfied with my Ipad Pro.

I’m very glad now that I went ahead and bought it.

I DO like Apple products.  Just perhaps not the phones so much.





At any rate,  this image was edited. Heavily.

But, in my defense,  I needed all the help and extras that I could get as the original shot wasn’t super.

The editing included – tweaking tone, color, white balance, sharpening, defining, saturation. I added some filters. Enhanced the lilac hue by about 40%.  Then Cropped it.




A Workout

I really worked it over.

Doing a lot more work  processes and taking much longer than I would  normally do with my Camera photos. Just over an hour to do this one.






I ended up liking this alright.

It has a feel to it that is similar enough   to How I Paint.  I do like to paint skies just like this!
