I have to admit: even if the Lower Rhine region is the uncrowned king of cloudy skies, the Bavarian sky at least has an outside chance. The only thing that's missing is a decent river, so let's take these hills in the background instead. :-)

@Jen: These Bavarians just have better weather. Frustrating.
Beautiful clouds and sky... Love the different tones of the sunset light.

@juant3: Fortunately they promised better weather, as it was raining for two days then. The next day was fabulous, just sunny weather and no clouds left.

@Ina: Thanks, Ina!
I'm often tempted to shoot great skies like this, and usually, due to what's in view on the ground, I can't isolate the sky as I'd like.

@Twelvebit: Sky alone usually isn't enough; I try to capture from the surrounding landscape as much as possible. If you have a tree or a building at the border of the frame (a silhouette is enough), maybe a mountain, and some clouds, then you'll have an interesting sky picture. The rest is post processing - I enhanced the clouds a bit. Voilà!
Hast hier wieder mal sehr schön die Stimmung eingefangen- grossartiges Licht!

@Michael: Gebirgshimmel. Die Bazis sind damit schon ziemlich im Vorteil.
On one of the cable TV channels they were giving "Ludwig" tonight...one of the movies that is a rare piece of acting and staging. And now, looking at your shot, I was thinking how many times did he look at the Bavarian sky? Did he see the same patterns you've captured here? I'm positive that he'd have loved this atmosphere!

@Japanalia: You mean Visconti's Ludwig, right? Without going too far, I'd say that L. looked way too often into the sky :-D
