Clouds III


Here is the last in my clouds. I was actually focusing on the tree in the courtyard of the Palace of the Governors that was starting to get green. Behind the tree is the New Mexico History Museum. I just love Pueblo style architecture.

I love the fact that clouds are such a novelty in your part of the world. Not where I come from!

A trip to the History Museum alone is worth a trip to Santa Fe. Terrific sky!

Halcyon said...

It all comes together very nicely! The tree, the building and the clouds.

Beautiful shot Randy!
I've always heard bout Santa Fe style, but after all this time following your blog, I hope one day I can check it in person. ;-)

It's nice to see things "greening up!"
I love Pueblo architecture as well, and the way the colors contrast w/ the beautiful blue skies.
Thanks for the kind comment on my pots- I'm far from being a master... but will keep at it!
:)

Very nice, Randy. And you are certainly in the right place for someone who loves pueblo architecture.

I do too, though I'm in Florida!

Sharon said...

I love pueblo style too! It is one of my favorite southwestern styles. Love the budding trees!

I also like the Pueblo style architecture. Seeing how this style dominated the type of building in Sante Fe when I passed through there last month, I don't think I would grow tired of it. Thank you too for answering my question about building codes. I suppose when going to the paint section in Home Depot they have an entire wall full of adobe colored paint.

RedPat said...

Me too - there is such a warmth to it!

Dawn said...

The architecture never ceases to amaze me!!! And the background isn't too shabby either;)
Really like your Cloud Posts! So much different than what I see at present here. All white. And snow.
Thank you!!! I needed this today!

I love it, too. I am not a fan of everything Southwest, but the pueblos make me drool. Keep looking to the sky, Randy!

Little fluffy clouds!

Der Pueblo-style in Verbindung mit dem blauen Himmel und den Wolken gefällt mir auch sehr gut.

Great color in the sky. The architecture out that way looks so organic! Just like it was intended to be there all along.

Olga said...

Magnificent shot! I think that the Pueblo style architecture looks really harmonious with nature.

Doug Hickok said...

The pueblo style goes so naturally with the sky and clouds. Wonderful shot!

Hello Randy,
HDR is very simple, (you may need a tripod unless you hand is really sturdy taking multiple shots) ...
Switch your camera to take multiple shots of -1, 0, +1 exposure compensation. When you take the 3 shots consecutively, the shots are taken with the 3 different exposure compensations. You can even shoot with -2, -1, 0, +1, +2. Usually this setting is called "Bracketing". You can even bracket the Aperture!
If your camera cannot combine photos into one, then you have to need to software, I understand the advanced software such as Photoshop is better. Have fun.
I use Photomatix to combine the shots I take to create the HDR!
have fun !
