Drama in the Skies

In landscape photography nine times out of ten the skies really make the image.  That is why most photographers hate bald skies (cloudless) because they are a boring sheet of blue.  Recently when i was in Monument Valley, I would not shoot any landscapes because it was yet another day of bald sky and I had spent days shooting around the sky.  Fortunately i thought to go to Upper Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon where it is difficult to see the sky.

But on other days the Photography Gods smile upon you and reward you with magnificent drama in the sky, here I express the drama in monochrome images (black & white is my passion for photographic images).

The first two images are shot directly at the sun, which is behind some very thin clouds, but enough to prevent lens flare.
