Liquid mountains of the sky

An active sky can add movement and colour and drama to a photograph … and sometimes skies ARE the photograph, as the landscape pales in comparison to the dance of light and cloud that is happening above.   This one taken in Normandy added such beauty to our autoroute drive.Brittany clouds 24 SL

Driving the Cape Breton Trail in Nova Scotia we saw some beautiful turbulent skies, this one at 4 Mile Beach at Aspey Bay.
