Ominous Clouds above the Castle by Mike Jackobo

Ominous Clouds are gathering above the walls of a castle. Again an infrared photo from Acrocorinth. This was one of the last photos I took for the day and it came out pretty spectacular.

I have taken thousands of infrared photos and so I can, more or less, predict what the final result will be. In fact, this is not the first time I have taken a photo of clouds in such a pattern. The angle of the sun makes the castle wall appear black. This is another element that intensifies the atmosphere of doom created by the clouds. The black and white gives more emphasis on the shapes and the contrast between light and dark. Everything aligned to make a photo that I immediately picked, after reviewing it in the camera the first time.

People who have seen the photo, made the comment that there is distortion by the lens, because the walls appear round. Actually, in the middle of the frame, the structure makes an angle and this is the reason that makes it look distorted.
