Montana is definitely the right place for a sky fan like yourself. : )
Your composition does a great job of bringing out how the sky dwarfs even the mountains and the vast prairie.
The light and exposure are just right, and you have captured a beautiful cirrus cloud formation.
TFS. : )

This is what we in Norway call mackerel clouds, probably because the pattern looks like that on the fish..! Whatever... they always mean nice weather!
Classic composition in well defined layers, very pleasing lines and good balance...

Hi Niek !
What a wonderful landscape ! You're right, the sky looks huge on this photo. These white clouds are very nice, I love the shape. Excellent details and wonderful colors, great composition and POV. its the kind of picture I would like to hang on the wall. Very well done !
I think this is a nicely executed photograph; well exposed with good DOF. When I think of the Big Sky Country of the American West I think horizontally rather than vertically. Because you mentioned that your goal was to present "Big Sky Country" I'd suggest trying a landscape orientation. The tight vertical framing makes me feel constrained rather than that incredible feeling of expansion one gets when standing out in the middle of Montana/Wyoming. Just a thought...

A very simple and uncluttered landscape that looks superb. I like the portrait composition to show alot of beautiful sky. Colors and detail are excellent. A great sense of depth to the shot. Looks great!

I used to live in Texas and I'm moving back there in 2 weeks so I know about how big the skies seem to be over there, never been to Montana though. A nice shot, it gives us an idea of how big the sky appears to be, but being portrait it's a slice of what is there. Great detail throughout, wonderful colour and beautiful cloud formations, they look really high. Nice work, so far it looks like you had a great trip!
Lovely view, Neik!
I'm supposed to pick un my circular polarizer today from the post office and i hope it's going to work just like yours. Very well done. Magnificent colors...very well saturated, superb POV and composition.
Bravo and TFS

Great shot, Sir. While I agree with Evelynn that most shots of "Big Sky Country" are taken using a landscape orientation, I think your portrait perspective gives a unique twist to the feeling. It actually caught my eye because it was different than most "Big Sky" shots I see! As to the striped clouds, Karin is right. Because they are high wispy clouds that are blown and scattered horizontally across the sky in 'flat' patterns by the strong winds in the stratosphere, such clouds are called 'strata.' Again, great shot - thanks for sharing! - Kelly
