What a difference a cloud makes

Cloud cover has a huge impact on light. This is especially evident at the harbour in Summerside this time of year. Ice and snow make a white blanket which reflects the light filtered through the clouds.


A overcast day recently had deep blue gray cloud cover. It reflected blue off the white frozen surface of the harbour. 





Another day, white clouds barely covered the sun and the surface of the harbour reflected silver.




Then there are those days without a cloud in a sunny sky, like this one last April. The sea and sky became one.




Perfect.

  3. Good photographic observations. Light makes the first one good and simplicity the last one. IMHO or course.

  8. Each photo emits a different emotion from me. I like the colors of the first picture best. But it is neat to have the harbor and sky morph into one! Andrea

    1. The different looks of a place are a study in themselves, Jenn.

  10. I hope I am never too old and jaded to marvel at the sky. And clouds. And water.
    Stunning photo series.

  11. You are so right about cloud colour, the colour of the sea varies so much and it is so much more noticeable than inland. Sarah x

  13. They all look so different, but they are the same place. This is why hiking on the same trails always seems different to me. I like the first one the best myself. :-)

    Hi and thank you for "sticking with me" during such a long blog break. I struggle with anxiety, especially during winter months. These are such lovely pictures. Each beautiful in different ways. We have enjoyed bright sunshine and warmer temps lately. Enjoy the weekend.
