The beauty of the sky is beyond comprehension. Never the same twice, it makes for unique images that depict a fleeting moment in time. In this book, David Mayhew (Fort Collins, CO) strives to show the full array of Mother Nature’s moods from the color palette and limitless textures that are conjured up.
Forecasting for skies, night or day, is as much an art as a science since weather is a living ecosystem, forever evolving.
Adapting to its whim, David drifts wherever the wind carries him, feeling out the best light in order to capture an image that ideally depicts sensational displays of beauty. Mayhew’s photographs show the dramatic skies of tornadic storms and severe weather, the serenity of a sunset, the fascination of unique formations clouds can conjure up, and the mystery of the mesmerizing northern lights. If the purpose of art is to create an emotional response in the viewer, then surely readers will see why the skies are his muse
