This is beautiful, Ms. D…
it almost has an HDR quality to it!
Also… do you like your new last name?!
I’m so sorry about that! Definetly been one of those days (I think there is a storm cloud like that hovering directly above my head)!
Not to worry! I live in a permanent Fog which is closer to my real name than is sometimes good for me, even on a clear day!
Thank you SiG but I have my trusty iPhone and a canny little HDR app to thank for this one! The shifting light of the sunset with the heavy cloud etc was a thrill a minute. How’s that for an exciting life!
That’s exciting to me, Ms. K!
A shot like this would definitely make my day!
(although I’m pretty proud of myself for not re-naming you today – so that’s a good start for me)
For a minute there I thought it was London.
Perhaps those clouds crossed the pond!
We just HAVE to like this! 🙂 75th and York?
You are SO close and of course thank you so much for the like!
First time I have heard threatening thunder clouds and the word delicious inhabit the same sentence.
You have a totally original point of view, Patti.
No wonder I enjoy your posts so much! No wonder so many people do —
Judith, I blame it on the light effects – what a touch of sun through the dark clouds does to me!
(Please know how much I am blushing at your kind words . . . .)

Nice take on the city, Patti. I love the water in the foreground. That big ship/barge ? is pretty awesome, too!
The other day a jet ski rider passed by talking on his cell phone . . . I wouldn’t want to be out there on a jet ski with the size of some of those barges anywhere near me. The wake they create is enough to make me seasick! Glad you enjoyed the scene, thank you Marcy!
Very good shot, I really like.
Thank you kind Carlos!
you’ve composed a perfect image to make unforgettable the term “LONG”!
It also helped that it was going against the tide which meant it didn’t slip from the frame in a hurry, by the time I grabbed my phone etc!
Amazing clouds! And hey, I recognize that bridge in the background. 😉
Isn’t blog travelling fun!
Great colours and composition, PK
Mother Nature did all the hard work!
We had a few barge go down the Thames yesterday….did you see it on the news? Like you shot.
Those barges on the Thames were wonderful! Yes I did see them on BBC America, the BBC channel with advertisements – no viewers licence this side of the pond! Hope you enjoyed the week-end’s festivities!
this picture looks like a painting! – rita
We scramble with our cameras to catch the light but to paint it. . . I am in absolute awe of those who do!
Good vantage point, nice colours, dark sky makes it look moody. Did you say this was taken with an iPhone? Phone cameras are getting better and better….
Yes Mike, this was taken with my iPhone using an HDR app. As many photo apps as there are it has been a steady case of trial and many errors in working through which one to use in different situations. Then there are the many filters and frames to choose from but this particular shot went straight from camera to blog without any further embellishments or cuts. The sky, with the light, was so full of drama it didn’t need any more help from me!
This photo is great Patti.
The light smiled for this one, thank you Cardinal!
beautiful and dramatic 🙂
Nature put on a good show!
Love the clouds. It created a dramatic, kind of thrilling contrast to the almost calm river. The buildings and the moving boat all adds up to a unforgettable image. Indeed, New York is no other. Grand and spectacular. Thanks for sharing today’s inspiration.
Climate and weather do paint such remarkable scenes don’t they although it is raining here now and looking very drab and grey . . .
bet you’d rather take a pic of broken head on a good day pk …
Pete, that hurts! Remind me to tell you one day about the last time I swam the winter waves of Byron Bay . . .
Nice one Patti. Love the world-weary look of that inshore tanker 🙂
ps, your clouds did cross the pond… We had torrential rain here on Thursday night / Friday morning.
From what I hear Martin it is still raining heavily over there while we have dreary drizzle here which leaves us all feeling a little weary!
Excellent shot – you captured the threat of the dark cloud. The color is ominous but beautiful at the same time. Really good photo ….!!!!
Thank you so much Isadora, it was a celestial moment but it seems that normal conditions have now returned!
What a masterpiece shot , well done here Patti 🙂
The clouds, with the setting sun, really did put on a good show Jake!
Very nice image. Cloudy skies always helps an image.
These clouds almost had their own Wagnerian soundtrack with them as they rolled up the river.
So wonderful! A luscious synergy (:
Time, tide and the tug all came together under that cloud! Annie, love your atmospheric shots with family background from Bethlehem, PA. http://wp.me/pXkZx-sQ
Patti, this is a gorgeous image.
Karen, thank you so much!
