God Rays, Genova


Boccadasse III, Genova, Italy, originally uploaded by - di.

I heard that god rays was the name given to these stunning beams of light ...

It was like watching a symphony as this storm came slowly down from the hills and rolled over the sea, with the clouds breaking open and roiling around.

It was truly stunning.

Wow. Beautiful photo. This is what I love about being back in Ireland again, that the country gets effects like this. Haven't managed to successfully capture it yet :-D

Thanks, Ms DeadlyJelly.

Tonight the storm has arrived and there's this Fiordland-like downpour going on outside ...

Keep trying. It's about using your passion to capture what you love. I remember one of NZ's top photographers telling us that years ago ... 'photograph what you love and you'll get the results'. :)

Kisses from a dusty (because of the kitchenworks) Deurne!

So beautiful. I love the way the rays are straight down, as the ones I've seen on the Oregon coast seem to fan out.

Hey there, so good to read your kitchen work is happening and yes, I'll tell you all Lut, although there might come a point where you just want to tell me to shut up ;)
See you soon.

It's just all stunning here, Lydia and I am terribly and pathetically besotted :)
