We have skies here like I’ve never seen before. The sunrises and cloud formations, especially in the winter, are just amazing, and as a photographer I am continually tempted to do something with them.

Photographing skies is very difficult. Generally you need something else in the picture as a focus and then the sky is just part of the composition. This usually results in a sunrise photo with a mountain or ocean being offset by the sky. I’m not interested in doing this kind of photograph. So many of them have been done that it’s very hard to do something particularly unique in that genre.

So, I keep trying to capture interesting the skies by themselves. Most of the time they don’t turn out to be anything special, but occasionally I think I get something worth showing.
