Summer Skies IX
Lens: DA 18-135 Camera: K-30 Photo Location: South Georgia

I know for many Northern Hemispherians that it is the depths of Winter. While Winter has it's own beauty, it sometimes makes us nostalgic for warmer days. This panorama is from July, when the skies were filled with billowing towers of Gulf of Mexico fueled convection.

Very nice. Interesting clouds. The upper atmosphere moisture would give the lower level convection something it could really work with.

Did you use a filter, or did you really have that much contrast?

Very dramatic in either case.

I shoot with a circular polarizer which can help with the contrast (and color when needed) and when needed tweak the clarity slider a little, as the Summer air down here is thick with humidity and the haze can obscure some details.
