Great landscape photos often feature majestic mountains, splashing streams and rivers, or dramatic ocean views. Capturing images of those panoramic scenes requires being in the right place and under the right light conditions.
Traveling to those locations takes planning, time and luck. But there is another type of landscape that comes to you! You still need dramatic lighting and some luck, but travel is not really necessary.
In my mind, clouds can be the perfect landscape. A little imagination is necessary but it is not hard to think of those billowy vapors as puffy mounds of snow, or great white summits. Gazing up to the heights requires much less effort than climbing a real mountain, but the view is still inspiring.
