I hear it all the time from other photographers: they hate shooting landscape images on a clear, cloudless, blue-sky day because it’s so “boring”. I personally don’t “hate” cloudless days, but I often agree with other photographers about the “boring” part.
Of course you can get stunning photos of landscapes on a clear, cloudless day. You’ll get no argument from me on that point.
But, you can get equally-stunning photos on a cloudy day. Clouds add drama, interest, and texture. They turn a great image into a fantastic image, and are a necessary ingredient to jazz up what might otherwise be a good, but ho-hum photo.
Don’t wait for a clear day to take pictures. Go cloud chasing! See what kind of images you capture.

Your photos are incredible beautiful.
Rebecca, I really like you landscapes. They have a wonderful, vibrant color.
Thank you very much!
Fantastic series of photos–cloudless or otherwise! I think it depends on what you are shooting.
Thank you! And I agree, it all depends upon what one is shooting.
Magnificent images, Rebecca – Although I think the clear blue sky is stunning, the clouds definitely add more texture and movement to the images.
Very beautiful colors Rebecca! Nice!
