Building Storm

Building storms can be fun to watch and experience when in a mountainous region. The large peaks and low valleys can create major shifts of cloud formations in matter of minutes when the storm is rolling in.

On this particular hike with my wife and good friends, the thick clouds were swirling around the mountain peak, hiding it from view and then making it reappear for moments at a time. The sun was also popping through those clouds, splashing light throughout parts of the scene. It was perfect for a black and white conversion to help showcase the drama that was taking place. So, I edited the image in Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 to give the final scene more depth and contrast by deepening the richness of the blacks and giving a crispness to the whites.
