At one time I only wanted to capture the most aesthetically pleasing images of the sky even if that meant altering them in Photoshop, and although I still love the resulting photographs, there's a huge part of me that now just wants to capture them as they really are, in their own beautifully organic state. There is beauty in everything, even if sometimes it's difficult to see at first.
The surrounding environment impacts upon the sky greatly and I think that's something that you can really see through the lens of a camera. I love the way street lights alter the colour of the sky just as much as I love being out in the middle of the countryside at night time looking up at the darkness & seeing all the twinkling stars above. It's one of those things that makes me feel so small & yet so alive at the same time.
I have piles of memory sticks and folders full of skyscape pictures and I don't think I'm ever going to stop photographing the sky. I can look at an image and remember exactly where I was at the exact moment I pressed the shutter button. That's what photography is all about for me and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Is there something that really fascinates you? Or is this just the pretentious photographer inside me showing through?
