A Cloudy Evening

A Cloudy Evening, originally uploaded by abhishekontheweb.
Some times, when you look out of your window, don't you wish that the sky was redder (something which is generally shown in those science fiction movies depicting earthlings on Mars) - giving it a dramatic hue. Well, yesterday, when I had nothing better to do, I looked out and saw a cloudy sky. There was a reddish hue, as it was almost dusk. Then, I thought, wouldn't it be worth a try to make it look even more dramatic. Thanks to digital photography, a photo can be made to look so surreal, just by a couple of mouse clicks (in my case, a couple of taps on the trackpad). With the help of iPhoto, I was able to use a red filter to enhance the color of the sky. The photo was taken at a very low exposure, to bring out the shades of the cloud formation.

The next morning, I was surprised to see the sky so blue!!


  1. Nice...! For whatever reason it doesn't look red on my screen though.. :|

  2. Thanks!!! Btw, are you able to see the blue color in the next pic (which, I just uploaded)...

  3. Yup! I do..and it is a lovely blue indeed! :) Maybe you can try resizing the image 'cos when I click on the image, it becomes soooo large that it becomes difficult to appreciate it on full screen... :)
