Here’s a little series I did over the summer.  I’ve always been fascinated by the clouds brought by the “Jangma” (장마), or East Asian monsoon and I wanted to capture it this year.  I had a lot of fun making these photos because I never knew when a shooting opportunity would come up.  Luckily, I had my trusty Fujifilm X100s in my bag all the time, ready to go (I know I can’t stop raving about this camera, but it’s just so small and awesome!).  If it’s getting cold in your area like it is here, perhaps these photos will remind you of the summer days that now seem like ages ago.

Photographer’s Corner:

As mentioned before, I used the Fujifilm X100s for all these photos.  The shots were all handheld, some of them using a Cokin graduated ND filter to balance exposure in the sky.  I usually do long exposures when making landscape photos.  However, in this case, blurring the clouds might have taken impact away from the main subject.
