Camille Seaman's sky monsters and frozen seafarersJul 12 2012

Yesterday In Focus featured new work from photographer Camille Seaman: storm clouds in the skies of the Midwest.

Nice cumulonimbus mammatus in #s 4, 14, and 16. And by coincidence, the NY Times Lens blog also featured Seaman's work yesterday, an earlier project that entailed shooting portraits of icebergs.

I like Seaman's portraiture approach to things like clouds and icebergs:

"They are like humans in that each one reacts to its environment and its circumstances in its own way," Camille Seaman, 42, said. "I've come across icebergs that were very stalwart and just refused to dissolve or break up. And there were others -- massive, massive icebergs -- that were like 'I can't take it anymore' and in front of my eyes would just dissolve into the sea. There's so many unique personalities. There's a sadness to them."
