Low Clouds in Sarasota

I was driving and stopped to capture these low clouds in Sarasota as they blew over the buildings. Because it was also sunrise the combination of clouds and sun created a dramatic effect. The clouds just sort of popped up out of nowhere. I had been walking not far from here a few minutes before and they were nowhere to be seen. I suppose the rising sun created the right conditions.

The weather can change on a dime here. Sometimes it's subtle, like the wind picking up over the water across the bay. Other times it can be more dramatic, like a thunderstorm seemingly out of nowhere. Because we spend so much time outdoors it's a good idea to pay attention to these things. I've been out taking pictures of the sunset at a beach oblivious to a thunderstorm creeping up behind me. When that happens its best to get shelter right away.

I talk about the weather a lot when wring about my photos. I'm laughing at myself because that's what you do when you meet someone and you don't know what to say, you talk about the weather. I think that's funny because half the time I don't know what to say about my photos so I suppose I talk about the weather. I'll try to think of something else to say next time.
