    Hi,

    I'm just back from 5 weeks on our farm in rural Russia.
    Although it was mainly a working holiday, I did take some time for shooting now and then.

    Here's a first series of pictures, showing off the dramatic clouds that came over our region almost every night.

    There will be more parts, covering other items ! So stay tuned !

    All these are 5-shot HDR edits, using NIK HDR EFEX

    Looking forward to your comments,

    I really love the clouds #4 shot but they all are nice. This encourages me to try more with HDR

    All very nice of the clouds, but the best overall images - the ones that really hold my interest on every level, are the fourth and fifth...

    This is what I remember from my childhood on the Volga: looking from the high shore at a vast plain beneath me and the beautiful clouds slowly coming from behind the river. Thank you for sharing these pictures with us.

    I think "dramatic clouds" is an understatement---very nice images! Thanks!
