Cloud and Ship

by Yevgen Timashov

This is classic example of absolutely spontaneous and unexpected shot. Firstly my attention was attracted by amusing cloud. I made a shot. And I’ve got an image with the cloud. After that a small ship came to the frame. I made a shot again. And I’ve got an image with story. I love unexpected photographs.
Equipment: Nikon D90, Nikkor 50/1.8

The cloud looks to be drawing energy from the water; Fabulous piece of work, thanks.

Thank you, all. :)
I was shooting from the mountain plateau named Ai-Petri. It’s in Crimea, Ukraine.

Great shot1 I’ll bet you could sell it to National Geographic, it looks just like something they would use.

27th March 2011 at 8:28 pm

Absolutely stunning capture.

27th March 2011 at 11:00 pm

Thr blue sky over the huge rain cloud in front of the ship, makes the ship seem small seen in this perspective.

Marvelous! I was really drawn in by the fantastic cloud display without even knowing about the ship until I read your title. Adding the ship is inspired and does really make this a “story” shot. Congratulations.

28th March 2011 at 6:36 am

Excellent! Unexpected photos are often the best photos.

28th March 2011 at 5:10 pm

Fantastic! The ship really conveys the massiveness of the cloud formation! Well done!

Pretty cool! Looks like the boat will be consumed. Being at the right place at the right time.

i love the clouds how they fall and can tell how big it is. If it wasn’t for the ship, i would guess it was small =) good job!!!!!!!!!!!
