You may rightly infer that I have been catching up on my vintage Mad Magazines with their perennial ‘Lighter side of . . . ‘ articles by Dave Berg. But if you have been following my work in this space you also know that I have been training myself in (mostly) landscape photography and digital editing, and Marywood University provides an excellent laboratory. I have a long way to go, needless to say.

But I was very fortunate tonight in having made a quick run up to campus after a long drizzly cloudy day. The weather broke and the sky was deep blue with many dramatic clouds at sunset. The light was deep ruddy gold, the best I have ever seen it there. I pulled out my iPhone, which, with its HDR software, is ideal for capturing mixes of sun, shadow, and cloud. Here is a gallery of the best images, all edited in Apple’s Photos program.
