I thought it about time for another big sky pic. This one taken recently, in between belts of rain, above the ripening corn near Caynham Camp.

Magnifiques ces nuages et le bleu du firmament! A la fois denses et légers! Comme on aimerait bien les suivre car ils ont un point de vue imprenable sur la terre!

Not very often you see a sky as a main subject, but this is spectacular !!

Wow! Amazing frame! The colours are so beautiful and leaving just a little bit of the foreground in the frame adds to much to the perspective. Bravo.

Very cool! I just got back from Montana, which is called "Big Sky Country" but didn't see anything like this.

I thought yesterdays was "another big sky pic"! *Sigh* - so much to learn :) Anyway, this one is special too, with the blues being especially vibrant.

@dobbino: On a comparative scale of sky size i would have put yesterdays at about low middle myself ;)

And a fine sky it is! Love the form and shape of these clouds. I never tire of these shows of nature which are always unique. Fine post.

WOW!!! What a fantastic sky picture! You should have this enlarged. It is amazing! I love the wide angle. How did you do that? Did you get a wider angle lens now? I have a 18mm and I am not able to take shots like this. What is your secret???? Please tell me :)

@Marion: It's taken with the standard lens that came with my Nikon, an 18 to 70 mm zoom. I notice it says 27mm on the stats above next to the picture and I assume this must mean the 35mm camera equivalent. It was taken at the widest angle on the lens anyway.

Your best work! An awesome shot Grouser!

Wonderful!!! I grew up in big sky country. I miss it. We're surrounded by trees, trees, trees.

My first thought was the word dramatic. This is one amazing image.

A fine shot of these spectacular cloud formations. I like the bit of landscape too and the way the furrows lead directly toward the huge sky. Very nice image.

it's awesome air has such a physical presence. fluffy clouds as solid as anything, ropes and vines and sheets of clouds, against a hard blue sky. if the world turned upside down, i think i could walk on them forever.
