Mammatus formation, Griffith Park

Ken and I were up in Los Angeles one day, killing time before a meeting of our photography group, Clickers and Flickers. 

We drove to the Astronomer's Tower at the Griffith Park Observatory and were met with one of the most beautiful and unusual skies I have ever witnessed.

It literally came out of nowhere!

Fairly poetic I would say, when you consider the setting.

It was quite an interesting day, visually speaking.

The Observatory snap is really fine. I looked at it and immediately started mentally processing it as if it was an old hand tinted postcard or such. Suddenly I realized it was a straight photograph. The color palette is really fine. One of the things I like to see is a sensitivity of the photographer to the colors that are NOT in the picture. This uses few and unusual colors to produce good result.

In the interest of full accountability, actually I cheated, Jon. For the first time in about three years, I used an analog efx filter from dxo and dialed in an early forties film look for that one. Busted.
