Spare Time by Jacob-Routzahn Spare Time by Jacob-Routzahn
Just before work ends, I glance at the sky. I see if the clouds look like they are gonna show some light, and if I'll get lucky or not with a photo op.

Well, for the second night in a row, the sky looked like it was about to unleash a flurry of colors, however. After work ended, I needed to help my sister-in-law out for a bit with some moving. So, in a mad dash I did my chores with just enough time to go grab my gear.

Right when the early signs of color started to dance on the clouds, I was finding a new spot with all new sites along Horsetooth.

Just enough spare time to give me a chance to capture the beauty.

Dear author! I added this your photo to one album on my page in Russian Social Net, because I like it very much, and I wanted to share it with my Russian friends. Will you allow and forgive me for this, or should I delete this wonderful photo from the album? 
Waiting for an answer.

Thanks, the rock was pretty distorted to begin with, but the wide angle helped a little :)

Great job capturing these crazy clouds! I've been dying to see some clouds like this during my visits to the Pacific Northwest...nothing like this so far! A fine shot, Jake! :)

Thank you so much :) Come to Colorado for a week with me and you'll see some crazy clouds! Maybe two if we need the extra time. ;)

lmao!!! I didn't even pay any attention :D And thank you a bunch. They hang around during the day then disappear usually in the evening. So it's nice not getting screwed every once in a while.

Epic sky. Glad you made it to get the shot. Looks like it might need a slight CCW tilt though but it's hard to tell. Now I just wish some clouds would come out this way, clear skies for almost two weeks straight.

I had thought the same thing until I realized the only level part is the water in the background. The bank should be at a slight angle due to the perspective. But overall I'm glad you like it :)

Ok, it just plays mind games then haha. I need an epic sunset to happen soon or I'm gonna go crazy.

It does play tricks with the mind 8. And I understand completely. Here you'll go a week or two without anything, then BAM, like two or three days, up to a week of awesome sunsets.

Yeah, I'm keeping my eye on the weather. Looks like there are going to be some clouds wednesday, but I don't know when they will show or if I'll even be able to catch them.

Do you shoot professionally?
Reply
:iconpeterjcoskun:
PeterJCoskun Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2012
No, not yet at least, but I'd rather just take photos than do anything else anyways. Making money with it is just the added bonus. Hopefully I can get to the professional level soon.
