A mountain area in Central Norway, this is the sky on a day in early August…

Slightly underexposed to get the most out of the fluffy white clouds!

I have a dream - I'm laying on such a soft cloud and watch you down on the ground, so tiny and small making a shot of me - dreaming my dream on the clouds. Can you see me winking to you on my cloud? - Perhaps next time when you make again such a wonderful shot ;-)
Thanks, realy marvelous Pablo,

Excellent clouds and a great composition. I like the way you have given dominance to that fabulous sky. I think you made a good choice on the exposure as the clouds are the subject here. Wonderful

Hi Pablo.
Beautiful sky and very beautiful clouds.Perfect composition,nicely light.Great shot!
Thanks and greetings.

Hi Pablo,
You touched my weak spot with this photo. I am just a sucker for skies. I am glad you had this one still in your archive, since it seems that the skies in Norway are stunning. Even so that I have decided to visit your country next summer.

Hello Pablo,
Very nice capture of dramatic sky.POV,colorsframing and composition are wonderful.

This is a magnificient capture.
Very well done.
You are a master of photography.
The sky, BG; the clouds, they want to "talk" to me.

Nice to see a blue summer sky Pablo. We've had rain and more rain for days. And, guess what...rain is predicted for tomorrow and the next day..........

I like the diagonal cloud formations. It is a nicely saturated sky!

Hi Pablo,

This type of pictures use I for the weather report as background on the TV. The diagonal line in the clouds formation give a nice composition, very well done!

Best regards,

best subject there is...always changing and interesting..we 'see' a lot in the clouds and may be the reason heaven is thought to be 'up there'
a cigarette of the early 50's in the uk was called passing clouds and had a guy on the cover just smoking and musing at the ...you guessed it..passing clouds..
i am sure they were put there for the thinking man...to ponder
good shot boss and of course minimalistic horizon position satisfies this wasnt taken from an airplane...flying that is...those clouds up there are very different..
cheers and thanks

Bonjour Pablo,
Très beau ce ciel chargé.
Belle définition des détails.
J'aime aussi beaucoup les ombres sur le bas de la photographie.
Bien vu.
Moustique :o)

Hi Pablo,
Great gradation of blue color, from top to bottom of the sky. Various shapes and sizes of clouds are nicely decorating this blue sky. Very beautiful image. Excellently done!

Aaa...summer clouds :) Good old warm sunny days...
These are raelly beautiful and i especcially like the way you used the circular polarizer to enhance the colors and the contrast between the clouds and the sky.
Very well done! Yor are however right about that slight underexposure, but it's still a great reminder :)

Bravo and TFS

Oh you have beautiful clouds too!! They must of come from the front of my house to yours!! Neat how they are almost diagonal to the landscape..I Love it! TFS

Excelente mirada al cielo, y preciosas nubes, que lucen un blanco espectacular en contraste con el azul profundo del cielo...muchos saludos, Pablo.

Perfect exposure to capture those beautiful cloud shapes, Pablo.
The angle of exposure fore-shortens the hill but elevates the contrast between the darker earth and the lighter sky to great effect.
Thanks for sharing this great image and take care.

Hi Pablo,
Just marking this wonderful post for now and will be back with a proper critique later.

You can see I wasn't able to pass Your gallery with writing one comment only. :) Another fantastically composed skyscape, with only very few visible land, but with awesome blue and perfectly exposured white clouds. Masterful image - like all of Yours. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László
