My entry into Roger's Creative Photography Contest this week isn't really very creative as it's a straight-out-of-the-camera shot but I still thought it was pretty darned cool as I simply love the contrast between the dark clouds above and the bright landscape below.
One of the advantages of working in "The Ivory Tower" of dispatch at American Ambulance is that I get a great view of Norwich - or at least parts of it! This picture was taken this past Sunday afternoon when I happened to look outside and noticed that the sun was shining over the city but there were dark clouds - very dark clouds - coming in from the East. Luckily for me I had my camera with me and I was able to get a few pictures - this was one of my favorites.
Be sure to check out the other entries at the Creative Photography Contest and if you've got a picture that you'd like to enter yourself - what are you waiting for? The contest is open to everyone with submissions taken weekly and winners announced at the end of the month. It's a great way to see some great pictures and get some feedback on your photography - something that I always look forward to.
Oh, and speaking of blogs and winners ... I got this great award from Dianne at Forks Off the Moment yesterday and I've got to tell you that I am honored to pieces as Dianne is an excellent photographer and for little ole' me to get a photography award from her is just amazing and a true honor! I think that Dianne gave me the award because of my tendencies to skulk around dark places at night taking pictures as she wrote "I really want to go photo hunting with this lady. She roams around cemeteries at night and scans the skies. She is a photographic adventurer and a really good person." but either way, it's wicked awesome and I am wicked honored! Thank you again, Dianne!
