It is quite rare for me to get a chance to post a photo just a day after I shot it. It had been raining for several days in Fredericksburg, Virginia but, alas, as it cleared up, it unveiled a magnificent Tiepolo Sky.
The Venetian master painter, Gianbattista Tiepolo (1696-1770), painted canvases, walls, and ceilings, but it was his ceilings that raised him to immortality in the field. Here are silhouettes of bare trees against the backdrop of a Tiepolo Sky .
I shot a series of photos with my iPhone 6 Plus, all of them minor masterpieces. It is possible that I could have produced a sharper image with my Nikon, but I find that I am increasingly dependent on my cellphone's camera.
Warm regards to my friends on Trekearth.

Amazing colours, it looks as if the sky was on fire! Good job you had your smartphone camera to capture such a special moment, it's impossible to carry an SLR everywhere, don't I know it!
The silhouetted trees add something extra special to the image.

Hi dear Bulent
Very dramatic sky you well captured in the best framework / composition. Delight slight color / light gradation is very impresive.
All the best and have a good day! Takero

The dramatic sky is magnificent and it also provides a fine backdrop to the beautiful pattern created by the trees. Your iPhone impresses me.

Excellent light management to capture this beautiful sky with the silhouetted trees. The atmosphere is quite scintillating.

What a beautiful sky, the orange explosion in the clouds is fantastic and the grey parts along with the silhouettes of the trees make the photo extra dramatic. Well spotted and captured!

Beautiful picture showing the eternal value of the ancient painters. They are actual in their presentation of nature. There are only some dark modern elements in the scene we hardly can see which shows the difference.
Have a nice day

I've always thought that bare tree branches are beautiful. The silhouettes here are lovely against the moody sky. With the bit of orange glow in the lower left corner, the clouds could be mistaken for smoke. You should try painting this scene, as well. :-)

Ciao dear Bulent
Oooh now that's a spooky tree in silhouette against that magnificent winter sky. I hear what you're saying, I too am increasingly reliant on my camera phone, it's so much more portable and less intrusive. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful weekend.
Thanks for sharing

This is a fine vertical composition with fine effect of the wonderful sky and clouds. The silhouettes of the branches creates a stunning pattern against the sky. Fine work:) TFS.

The colors of the sky are really beautiful, and the silhouettes of the trees look great, especially these branches framing the view! Excellent colors and contrast! Wonderful composition!
