Photography can be as poetic and compelling as the work of the written masters, and we are lucky to have such a visual poet here in the Northwest--one who specializes in the most dramatic type of local clouds: lenticular or mountain wave clouds.
Her name is Darlisa Black and on occasion I have shown her work on this blog and in my book.
Just a sample to show you what I mean. First, some beautiful lenticular clouds:
She has a way with light and shadow that I really appreciate, as well as the occasional watery reflection of dramatic cloud features. Lenticular clouds are particularly good photographic subjects, with both subtle, beautiful, and other-wordly features.
