The Story

Tips from the Top Floor is a weekly show about photography. It is brought to you by yours truly, photographic mythbuster Chris Marquardt. I am behind PocketChris, the photo instructor in your pocket. You can also watch me live all over the world, as the Photo Guy on the Tech Guy Radio Show with Leo Laporte.

I decided to use Backer because I have always wanted to make a poster -- I get a lot of requests -- but never had the chance and certainly didn't want to manage the inventory myself. Help support independent podcasters and photographers and creatives in general.

About the poster

I took this photo in Reykjavik, Iceland while walking out towards the harbor. It really shows the contrasts in weather that this exciting island has to offer. The view over the bay is spectacular, with Mt. Esja in the distance, but the rainfall over Reykjavik was what captured my imagination in the end. The spectacular weather phenomenon didn't last for too long, so I was lucky to be in the perfect location at the perfect time.

Why did you take this picture?

What initially drew me into this scene was the big looming cloud over the city. Never before have I seen so many interesting weather phenomena in such a short time than in Iceland and this is one great example. When I noticed the cranes to the right that were all pointing toward the center, I knew this would work. I love those cranes! They do a wonderful job adding scale to the big cloud.
