    Stunning! so clean and crystal clear. Some of these images have a minimalist quality with an impeccable composition. It must be incredible to be there in front of such a panorama and see the sky change. Thanks for your posts. Always a good value

      Thank you very much, Julia. In springtime, the weather is more unstable in the region, and that’s when you get some really great skies. Glad you liked them.
