This root page guides to a selection of my mixed cloud archive. The only order of the images is their order in my slide pages! Images are not grouped in any other way; not by cloud family nor colour, general look...
Posting has started from page #101. These >100 pages will be filled before other clouds as they have most interesting mixed type samples. This section was updated 5th Oct 2006 and will get also a new update as soon as I get slide pages from USA to archive (and to get slides numbered!) summer 2006 clouds.
Cloud archive consists of perhaps 20 000+ pictures of which intention is to post some 7 000 samples as soon as other more important updates have been posted. However, it is already now worth mentioning some explanations and arguments, why the selection is so large and why there are so many look-alikes posted:
*Of many cases there is a "complete" time history of the display posted.
*Of each phase of the time history there may be several different zoomings/croppings. It is a lot easier to show different samples instead of trying verbally to explain what else is available.
*Each scene posted has had some motivation to become photographed, although even I myself occasionally have to think hard what it might have been!
*Some dull looking image may be only the "final phase" of something more glorious preceding it (f.ex. a sequence of a dissipating cloud).
*If picture has f.ex. a pink cast it means that the color is right and that the cast is due to morning or evening light. Of course, this cast can be tuned off if needed.
*Pictures are in a "chronological" order - lower picture number means earlier shooting.
*Apart of one or two images all other are scans of the full 35 mm film frame.
*There are inevitably look-alikes. This is the consequence of look-alike original slides. However, in most such cases slides themselves are not so identical as they may show bracketting in exposure (which is somewhat smoothened when tuning the scanned images for Web).
It is also worth writing a few lines of some aspects in possibe image needs:
*In many pictures a top of a chimney rising above the tree line may look disturbing. This pipe is relatively easy to remove in PhotoShop (i.e. removing the disturbing top of it).
*In most pictures there are no problems to use the mirror image, if such a cropping would better match with other layout.
*A more tough problem to fix may be the steeply darkening blue sky due to polarizing filter used in wide angle photography.
Because of the large number of the pictures HERE WILL LATER BE A LINK to a quick sample tour of the pages #101-#133.
