Sony NEX 6 / 16mm pancake / wide angle / Big Sky Cloud Drama

I've always admired large format photography. Photographers lugged big cameras with tripods and large plates in an attempt capture the vast beauty of nature. Think Ansel at Yosemite. I can and do cheat with digital by shooting a series of images vertically then stitching them together. PS knows to turn them 90 degrees as it makes it a seamless picture. I shoot these all the time and post those I like best here. The sky is a constant source of drama. Changing weather patterns display cloud formations of varying density from shades of white to shades of gray. The sky adds the contrasting blues in the background. The sun lights it all up to heighten contrast. I can't always do the scene justice but I keep trying.
