To Cloud or Not to Cloud..that is the question...

by Dave Kallaway

Sunrise & Sunset Pics might be one of the most popular photos you can post online. It's great subject matter..no doubt. But it's those wonderful clouds that add so much to the color you get at sunrise and sunset. Throughout the year..those colors change for these types of photo opportunities. If you went to all the trouble to get up extra early for a sunrise or got in the prime spot to catch the sunset AND didn't have those clouds..would you still take the shot?? Heck yeah..but just a thought. Since you don't have the clouds to reflect great color off of..maybe try taking a black & white for a change. Plus..take your sunrise and sunset pictures to a new level by finding an interesting building or item in the foreground. It'll make your pics stand out above the straight: "landscape of nothing with sun on the horizon" pictures...
