Storm coming over Jebel Misht.

Storm-Coming-Jebel-MishtYashica 124G – negative slightly cropped.

One thing that can be said about Jebel Shams is that the weather never fails to impress, although getting the right exposure can be a real pain sometimes…. πŸ™‚

I will not go into the scanning problems.

    1. Thanks Louis,
      Although I must admit the tonal balance took a bit of achieving from the scan; fortunately I was able to compare a fibre print while looking at the screen.
      It was then just down to how well peoples monitors were calibrated (not my problem πŸ™‚ )


  1. Stunning shot David. Love the receding tones and that wonderfully brooding sky. At least the call-outs get you away of that suffocating office! πŸ™‚

    1. Very true…… and the weather up there was very nice.
      Work tomorrow and then a few days off in recompense for a disturbed weekend πŸ™‚
      Thanks for the comment much appreciated.


  2. Wonderful! Having the camera with you at work is a great plan, where ever work is. But this must be one of the all time best illustrations of that rule!

    1. Thanks,
      Unfortunately, I get a phone call early this morning and I am up there again today – grrrr but hay ho such is life.
      We all need to earn a living and, at least it will get me away from 40c+ as at 10,000ft the temp will be about 24 – 26c.


      1. And, you will have your camera out and about with you! Here’s hoping for some fantastic sky and light πŸ™‚

        PS: I would trade that mountain in any weather for my cubicle farm without a window…

        1. Ha, The grass is always greener….. πŸ™‚ A long few days work !
          But I sympathise, as my office leaves a lot to be desired….


  3. Such a dramatic image and very ‘Biblical’ as eldinsmille says.

    1. Trying to keep the suns rays from blocking out and yet still see the graduated hills was a challenge – not to mention the sudden changes in light level.
      But I like the Yashica, its a good compromise for 6×6 travel.


    1. Thank you – I’m lucky really because I do have to spend quite a bit of time on this mountain range (work….) so see it in all weather. Although I am sure there is a suspicion that I like the place as I always seem to have a camera with me.
