Dark clouds are not necessarily bad

… at least not for photographers.

I took so many photos of the church of Saint John at Kaneo in Ohrid in Macedonia, but I’ll share the ones which show that this was not a perfect day. It had been raining on and off, and I spent a few hours walking around, always rushing back to the Orthodox church as soon as the sun broke through the clouds for a minute.

  2. I love dark clouds. Your photos capture them in a way that brings a longing to go there.

  3. Was it windy? When I look at the first photo, I like to imagine sitting under a tree on a hill, just enjoying the breeze and thinking of nothing in particular while looking out at that view.

    • It was not windy, that’s why it took so long for the clouds to go away.
      But there was a hill above the church (from where the first two photos were taken), and I sat down there with a book, smoked a cigar and enjoyed the beautiful view and the quiet, relaxing day.
      Ohrid is very busy and too touristy for my taste, so I was happy about the clouds and the rain because it meant fewer tourists than there would have been on a perfect sunny day.
