Cloud and ship

Ship on Black sea chased by rain clouds seen from Ai-Petri mountain on Crimea. (Yevgen Timashov | timashov.com)

December 2009, Ai-Petri Mountain, Crimea, Ukraine. This is classic example of absolutely spontaneous and unexpected shot. Firstly my attention was attracted by amusing cloud. I made a shot. And I’ve got an image with amusing cloud. After that a small ship came to the frame. I made a shot again. And I’ve got an image with story. I love unexpected photographs. By the way, this image take third place in “Landscape” nomination of Russian photo contest “Best Photographer 2010″. And the same image was selected among other works from National Geographic photo contest by “The Big Picture” website. I think this is my most well-known and recognizable photograph. For the present I hope.
