Cloudscapes • 8/5/2022

The ever changing cloud formations up here continue to hold my undivided attention. I can’t seem to get enough of it and I can’t seem to stop looking. Funny that I’m never bored by this vista. They form, then morph, then merge, then dissipate, like “thoughts”. I find that I can’t leave home without the camera around my neck….just in case one of them calls to me!

Too bad that some of these images break up after being crushed for the web. It’s always a trade-off between high quality and faster load times. I haven’t added or subtracted anything from these photos.

  1. There’s really little reason to worry about file size, especially when you use thumbnails. I try to keep my images under 600KB but a lot of people upload full size color images straight from their camera, like 4000 x 6000px. Jane Laurie once told me she uses settings in Lightroom to export her images at 500KB or less but I’ve seen some of hers at well over 1MB. As for using a WEBP for faster loading its ridiculous and likely reduces quality even more.

    I think we have a lot in common sweating the small stuff, ask the clouds if anything really matters. 😎

    Fantastic compositions and images!

  2. I guess I’m more serious (and dedicated?) to this than I realized. My background is graphic design and a lot of Swiss influence. Should have been a watch-maker. Is the “devil in the details?” Thanks for your comments. BTW, I did ask the clouds and they did reply, saying: “Remember, the reason that angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly, and so do we”.
