Thanks for stopping by, Psjunkie. The clouds were quite a bit more dramatic when I left the house. By the time I arrived at the location I wanted to photograph, this was all that was left. Make the most of it, along with a field test. The test transitioned to being more important.

Telephone pole ....bar-b-que grill?
Meh... a very nuanced decision ...
Which is the preferable “meh”????

( See Messerschmotts, Wilhelm, “The Ineffable Role of “Meh” in Composition” - cited by Drekmanger, J. In: The Ineffable Principles and Promise of Meh in Photography; v.8, no.11, 1943 - a true classic that, I’m sure doesn’t require citation being, as it likely is, on the “arm-reach bookcase” of every serious photographer! ( sadly,I loaned out my copy to someone some time ago and cannot recall the publisher.)
Publication ceased, I think, in 1944, each volume having consisted of a limited number of titles and, as expected, no text... but it remains one of the premier thought-provoking publications in the Arts of all time.

Best regards,
Dave

Yeah; I’ve really liked “ineffable” since I first encountered it in 6th grade!

Dave, unfortunately, I've not been able to find a copy of that book in numerous searches online. I'd have liked to read it.

I think I recognize Pandemic Photography. We have learned to find interesting subjects in the most mundane places. And a great sky can make any subject sing!

MInnie, the sky changed dramatically between when I left the house and when I arrived at the location. However, I still wanted to see how that lens worked under "real" conditions. So, all in all, the trip was a success test wise. Photographically, less so.
