Yes, you can shoot landscapes under a clear blue sky! Late in the day when the light is warm and the air is clear all the colors of the rainbow can be seen right before sunset. No, it’s not as dramatic as photographing a thunderstorm on the Texas plains but even a clear blue sky can tell a story. Open spaces. Quiet evenings. A rancher’s fields in late autumn.
Life is too short to spend the long winter months waiting for better landscape weather. Get out there and capture some magic moments before the opportunity slips away. Remember, we’re not getting any younger. So why are you still reading this?
