Sky Rays

We had a gorgeous sky this morning.   I guess it's our reward for dealing with the heat wave all week.   We hung around outside for a while with the animals and I was able to get some morning photos.   Right before we came inside, the sky lit up as though a big spotlight was shining up from the clouds.   It was very very pretty.   The first photo is SOOC.   The second photo is edited with Auto Tone in Lightroom.   The third photo is edited slightly with an adjustment in Lightroom to the Exposure and Blacks.

A wide angle lens would have been very cool for this sky!

That's funny, I posted pictures of clouds like that last week, with the same type of streaks, oh well guess that's cause we both live in California, LOL>

Wonderful skies!
From an editing standpoint, I like the edits you made on the third photo and you should apply the same to the 2nd photo.
I hope you receive cooler weather soon!

January Purge

I think it happens every Winter, the need to purge stuff.   It seems we spend years collecting stuff, holding on to stuff, only to find late...
