I'm trying cloudscapes every now and then. The perfect one will have rhythm, dark and light contrasts, a nice ground scene and movement along with an interesting pattern. The first one has an interesting pattern and contrast. I can't wait to get down to the beach and try some. There's also the Katy Prairie west of town. That would be nice, especially with flocks of geese across the skies.

This is my start for learning about cloudscapes. The cloud has a nice shape and visual balance. The tree at the left gives the viewer a feel for the enormity of the cloud floating by.
 The unusual angle gives the eye some visual excitement as it searches the borders for clues. The clouds have an ominous feel that almost seems like a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock movie. There are even birds.
A beautiful sunset with a lighted set of buildings adding interest and contrast. I much prefer an all natural scene, but that would be a long drive west of the city.
