So there’s cloudscape, yeah

There’s landscape, seascape, nightscape, cityscape, bodyscape and whatever “scape” you can imagine. This is photography and it is much about creativity as it is imagination. That is why there is cloudscape. Oh, that’s no sweat. Just point your camera up in the sky and find some interesting cloud formation then shoot away. Easy does it. The camera’s “eye’ will capture everything that your physical eyes see. But how about your inner creative eye? John A. Day has been photographing clouds for 50 years and he says in his Cloudman Photography Tips that the eye of the artist should see clouds as unique. Where others generally don’t notice an everyday atmospheric occurrence, you on the other hand should see colors, formations, arrangements and a visual spectacle. So train those eyes upwards or into the horizon, get a feel of the heavens and activate the inner eye. Let your passion and love for nature overflow. Look up in the sky, it’s not a bird, not a plane, not even the Man of Steel (for the comics-oriented mind), it is a weather phenomenon like sunrise, sunset or lightning that gets the attention of those with sharp sight, an external and internal eye that really sees.
