    • I know you are Lezlie. In fact, your Painted Cloud series was the impetus for this photo. Finally, I was able to see a sky as the sole subject in a photograph. These clouds warranted it…demanded it! I did not tilt the camera to get this angled composition. The camera was level with the horizon. “Ballet” is a nice analogy. I like that!

      • I am honored that my Painted Clouds have inspired you to direct your eye away from Terra Firma and into the Terra Nullius of the skyscape. It is a beautiful world up there as well and inhabited with ethereal visions worthy of being captured as you have done so elegantly in this image.
