I was asked to photograph a prospective Air BnB’s view the other day. The blue sky day was perfect for what the client needed to showcase the room, but I must say that every landscape photographers bone in my body screamed “yuck, yuck, yuck!” Those sort of days are just so boring. Give me a storm with clouds with attitude any day. So here’s a collection of stormy skies I took a few days ago from my veranda, showing a north westerly storm brewing over the Puketeraki Range, to the west of Christchurch. I have put one of the blue sky shots in to demonstrate the difference. You choose which you prefer!
