A new project for the new year. This one is closely related to two of my recent projects, Stieglitz Nebulae and Waves. (See these at my site: www.darinboville.com).

There are seventeen images total in the project, each printed on 17x22 paper using Peizography inks. The tonal scale looks a little like a platinum print. Five prints made of each image.

Here are the first four images:

It's a great subject. Stieglitz and Coburn both did much clouds work. Ralph Steiner spent 20 years of his retirement photographing clouds. John Paul Caponigro also has success with the subject in his Correspondence series. I like the subject too, and yours are different than what I've seen yet.

The first one is by far the most interesting for me.

Thanks, jp. Your last sentence, "....and yours are different than what I've seen yet" is a high complement indeed.

Thanks. That was one of the earlier ones--it was the one that convinced me I had a project. I hope the rest grow on you. :)

Love clouds! I spent two months or so just photographing clouds.

I have plenty more.... ;-)
These were done with a Canon 5D. Most likely the lens was 24-105 f/4L
