In the past week I have experienced heavy snow, wild, high winds, tropical downpours and a curious range of temperatures, all without leaving my little corner of the world. These slightly diverse weather conditions have provide some beautiful situations to photograph. The image above is one of them.
It is a photo of Polar stratospheric clouds, also known as nacreous clouds [click here for more information], with the silhouette of Edinburgh Castle standing strong against them. As I remember it, the clouds, they were all kinds of colours and violently bright. The light was red, then blue, then yellow and although there was a storm rolling in, everything seemed so vivid. They sky look as though it was being torn apart and I was seeing what was beyond the black. I still am in awe at the spectacle.
Of all of the photo’s I took that night, this is the photo I want to show. It was the first I took and for me is the strongest connection to what I remember about that night and although I am not the lone stranger standing at the edge, it is the best representation of me as I felt.
