One of the elements of landscape photography that I am most drawn to is the size, shape and color of the clouds. Absorbing the vibrant colors from the sun and earth, clouds are what make a sunrise or sunset so spectacular. They can also add a more subtle, mystical quality when they lie low and spread shapeless across the land. No matter what the focus of the image, the position, color, shape and even lack of the clouds seem to have the most effect on the mood of landscape photos.
